Custom

Select this option to specify the search base other than the default search base.

For example, you can customize the search base as follows to authenticate the user (sampleuser) who belongs to the organization (ou=HR), which is an organization unit under ou=user:

The organization structure is given below:

ou=HR,ou=People,dc=veritas,dc=com

|-sampleuser

ou=Engg,ou=People,dc=veritas,dc=com

|-Eng1

The default search base is ou=HR,ou=People,dc=veritas,dc=com

To authenticate users under ou=HR and ou=Engg, set custom search base to a level up:

ou=People,dc=symantec,dc=com
