Specifies whether the LDAP provider is the primary LDAP server where external users are defined.

When set to TRUE, the provider will be used to authenticate new LDAP users who have not previously logged in to the Content Server.

When set to FALSE, the provider will be used to authenticate only LDAP users who have previously logged in using credentials from that provider.

Default is TRUE.

This setting is obsolete for version 7.0 and later. See Priority for information on setting the order in which LDAP providers will be checked.
