I have a site in which site editors and administrator need to login using LDAP authentication. However, the site also will have regular authenticated users, who can register for an account directly through the standard new user registration form. I was wondering if it is possible to configure a Drupal site so that regular users can use the standard Drupal authentication process, but site editors and administrators can LDAP authentication?
I see that the LDAP module has a mixed mode setting in which it will use LDAP authentication if local authentication fails. I would assume in such a situation, any users that registered for an account through the standard create new account form would have a local account and thus would be authenticated locally. But how would it work with creating a new editor or administrator account? Is it the case that I just need to add them to the LDAP server, after which they be automatically added to the Drupal system?
