Customer wants to know the how does the back up user store work in case primary or secondary ldap server goes down.
The functionality is : If a validation request was not able to reach the first Userstore configured then it would switch to the second userstore and will remain with that user store. Its functionality is similar to a cyclic linked list. If the first one fails then the second one is used until the second breaks down and then it would reach out for the first (or the third user store if configured) user store again and use it until it breaks down. When the VIP EG service is restarted then the validation is always attempted with the first user store configured (hence resetting the fail over concept). So whenever the second userstore is being used and to make the validation to switch to the first user store then either the second user store has to down OR VIPEG service must be restarted.
