Environment

Release : 14.3, 14.4

Resolution

ADS_Failover and ADS_RETRY will only take place if one of the below errors happens:

LDAP_SERVER_DOWN

LDAP_UNAVAILABLE

LDAP_UNAVAILABLE_CRIT_EXTENSION

LDAP_TIMEOUT

LDAP_LOCAL_ERROR 

Other LDAP errors should not cause failover and will need to be investigated.
