RTC and LDAP Base Group DN Configuration Question

RTC : 3.0.1.4

Currently my RTC is set up with a
BASE Group DN : ou=Funny People,ou=People,DC=clowns,dc=remote
This works very well and no problem.

In Directory Server a new user has been created in ( there are reasons behind this due to nature of this user account ) :  
BASE Group DN : ou=Not So Funny People,DC=clowns,dc=remote

Is it possible for me to configure RTC to pickup users from two different Base Group DN ? or is my option to move the " new user

from " ou=Not So Funny People,DC=clowns,dc=remote "
to " ou=Funny People,ou=People,DC=clowns,dc=remote "

I realize this is more an LDAP question but I wanted explore if I can configure RTC to do what I need or am I missing something obvious ?

No, because RTC doesn't pick users up from the base group DN in the first place - it uses the base user DN. The solution in this instance is to modify the base user DN up a level to `dc=clowns,dc=remote` so that you can do a sub-tree search of both OUs.

You will likely also need to modify the LDAP settings of your app server (Tomcat/WAS) to change the base user DN and to ensure sub-tree searching is enabled.
