Using a backup LDAP connection as Active Directory log in?


Greeting people!

I have been asked to find out if an Epi site can use a backup LDAP connection in case something happens to the one of the servers.
My client basically has got two different servers containing the same Active Directory. And sometimes (according to the client) one of the servers are down.

My questions now are:

1. Is it even possible to have multiple Ldap connections in case one of the servers are down?

2b. If no, any other suggestions on fixing this issue?
