How Authentication Sources work?

Postby AlexandrosG » Mon May 21, 2012 2:29 am

I would appreciate some help in understanding how "Authentication Sources" work.
If i set up LDAP with OCS, can i choose during registration where the new account will be stored (local OCS database or LDAP)?
Does OCS tries automatically (during login process) to authenticate both from local database and LDAP (i mean if the account is not found in LDAP then try the local database)?

I ask this because i want to know if i can store accounts separately in LDAP and localy (e.g use the LDAP for administrator/manager accounts and local database for autors/readers).
