We are about to make some changes to our LDAP in A/D and before we do
so, I wanted to clear up some confusion I have in configuring ldap in
the GW Admin console.

If I log into the Admin console, go to System and LDAP servers, we have
the following configured....

We have a Directory named Corporate-AD and beneath that, we have an
indented LDAP server named Corporate-AD2
Corporate-AD points to our primary LDAP server while Corporate-AD2
points to a secondary server.

Within Corporate-AD2, I see all our post offices assigned to it. 
However, I don't see any way to assign post offices to the Corporate-AD.
 So first question -- is this becuase the top-level directory object
points to all post offices by default?  I see people hitting that server
for LDAP authentication so they are getting to it someway.

Second question --

It appears just by looking through the logs that the server that a user
uses to authenticate is A random pick.  I don't see any pattern to why A
person gets sent to Corporate-AD or Corporate-AD2.  Is it possible to
give a priority so that everyone would go to Corporate-AD and would only
be routed to AD2 if the primary was unavailable?
