Currently, Quickr can only access one LDAP directory for authentication.  If you want (or need) to provide access from multiple LDAP directories this isn't possible.  For example, you have a Domino LDAP directory and an Active Directory structure, you are forced to use native Domino directory w/ directory assistance for Quickr to see the AD users.  This prohibits you from integrating with Sametime since LDAP is necessary.
My idea is to provide the same or similar capability that exists in Sametime today to access multiple LDAP directories so that integration is possible.

What is the problem with using DA to add other directories to the LDAP? I kind of agree that Quickr should have the same options as Sametime, but if it works ok with Directory Assistance.... whats the advantage?

Quickr only has support for using one LDAP directory - no DA allowed from that LDAP directory. You can add a LDAP directory into DA on the Domino LDAP server, but Quickr doesn't see it. You can search against the DA'd directory from another Domino server or LDAP client, but not Quickr.

If you need multiple LDAP directories, you need to use the "native" Domino authentication (names.nsf) and the DA database on the Quickr server. This prevents using Sametime integration.

Hint: With websphere Quickr it is already possible to work with many LDAP
