Information in this document applies to any platform.
You have two or more Windows domains, and want to integrate them with WCC. You have set up two AD providers in WLS, and you are using a virtualization setting in JPS, described in <Note 1359171.1>. You expect users from both providers to be able to log in to WCC, and for AD groups to appear as WCC Roles for users from the first provider. (In WCC 220.127.116.11 and later, you would expect both users to see Roles.)
What you actually see depends on WCC version:
- 18.104.22.168 and earlier: all users can authenticate. But users in NESTED groups do not see Roles.
- 22.214.171.124: as above, but additionally second domain users see no Roles, nested or otherwise.
In either case, with virtualization false, users in SECOND domain cannot authenticate.
