Active Directory lookup

Do you know when Business Objects CMS performs an Active Directory lookup, if the query fails because a server is down, will Business Objects immediately retry? A retry is desirable because load balancing may route the next request to an available machine.

Which file has this setting?

Thanks in advance

The CMS uses Microsoft DNS to perform queries against AD. We configure a domain in the CMC and using that domain it will attempt to query DC's based on DNS, if no DC's are available it will continue to query as long as the CMS is running and AD plugin is enabled. The rules followed again will be dictated by Microsoft DNS.
