This configuration parameter specifies whether to force LDAP bindings to be refreshed even if the current binding is to a local (preferred) Active Directory site. Under some conditions, binding to a different site can help facilitate load balancing between servers. However, in environments with many machines joined to a large domain, binding to a new domain controller can cause serious performance problems because the agent must entirely rebuild the cache.

If you set this parameter to true, the agent will attempt to connect to another local domain controller when the period specified in adclient.binding.refresh.interval expires.

By default, this configuration parameter is set to false. For example:

adclient.binding.refresh.force: false
