UNAB was registered to the top-level domain and the output of `uxconsole -status -detail` shows it querying a large number of domains, including unwanted domains. This is causing performance issues with UNAB including long amount of time for UNAB  to start.

The following two tokens in uzauth.ini control what trusted domains UNAB will query within the registered domain. To have UNAB only query the registered domain, set ignore_domain_list to all. If UNAB should query specific domains, add them to lookup_domain_list in a comma separated list.

; Specifies the Active Directory domains supposed to have bidirectional
; with registration domain.
; Options are: none - UNAB will automatically query trusted domains,
; or a comma separated list of trusted domains.
; Default value: none
lookup_domain_list = none

; Specifies the Active Directory domains that UNAB ignores (not counting the
; registration domain) when it queries users and groups.  This token applies
; to all types of domains, including domains with one-way trust relationships.
; Options are: none - query current and all trusted domains, all - do not query
; trusted domains, or a comma separated list of domains to ignore.
; Default value: none
ignore_domain_list = none
