This is currently not possible. If the performance of the other way is not
good enough please open a jira. Alternatively you could make a separate
source for those users in the other OU but there may be some cons to that
approach as well...

Subject: [grouper-users] Multiple searchSubjects in sources.xml

Inside of sources.xml we specify the path to the base OU in Active Directory
containing the majority of our user accounts. However, we have a scenario
where our subject user accounts exist across two separate locations in AD.

We currently use the following:

Is it possible to specify a secondary location, for example 'OU=Other
Users,DC=campus,DC=ncl,DC=ac,DC=uk' in addition to the one specified above?

I've attempted to construct a search block in sources.xml using numParameters
to allow us to query a second location if the subject is not found in the
first, but I've not had much success.

I realise this could be achieved by specifying the base as
'DC=campus,DC=ncl,DC=ac,DC=uk', however our domain contains a number of other
root OU's that we'd rather not have Grouper search through in order to
maintain performance of the service.
