I would like to know how to disable the LDAP referrals in the Policy Server configuration.


In order to disable the referrals on the Policy Server you need to set these registry keys:

       EnableEnhancedReferrals = 1; REG_DWORD       
       EnableReferrals = 0; REG_DWORD 


     EnableEnhancedReferrals = 1 

Policy Server will not perform all referral processing. If EnableEnhancedReferrals is disable (value to 0) Policy Server will perform operations related to referrals such as DNS resolutions among the others.

     EnableReferrals = 0 

Policy Server will not to follow the referrals.

If the Policy Server has to contact Active Directories, let point the Policy Server to the Global Catalog which is the port 3268 in order for the Policy Server not to received command from Active Directory to follow referrals.
