Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When multiple configurations of the same authenication providers are configured in the Weblogic security realm using the same remoteBase (i.e. - you may perform this configuration if you have users that exist under different User Base DNs),  only the users from the first provider are searchable and displayed in Enterprise Manager when mapping roles. 

In Weblogic Administration console, users and groups from all the Provider userbase DN's are viewable.

Additionally, only users in the first ordered provider will authenticate in OBIEE. Authenticator virtualization is enabled with libOVD (virtualize=true) and the provider Control Flags are set to SUFFICIENT.

For example, there may be two LDAP providers defined in WebLogic realm with different Base DNs pointing to the two different OUs in the same LDAP server.
