I am trying to figure out how to make groups of users so that one set of users logs into one application and another set of users logs into another application, where both applications are running on the same server. Every time I try to do this, I end up ruining my server setup beyond repair so that it will no longer start no matter what I do. I am currently trying to get it back to what it was before when it was working, but I still cannot get my server to start. I recreated my server profile, and it started. As soon as I added in our normal LDAP settings, which were working fine before I did all this stuff, and which work fine for everyone else on my team, I started getting the same errors I was getting when I was messing with putting in groups. Here is the error I see, over and over again in the console, until it finally times out and stops:

Authentication failed when using LTPA. The exception is javax.naming.AuthenticationException: [LDAP: error code 49 - Bind principalDn points to referral.].

Google searching gives me 0 results. I have no idea what this means, what settings might possibly fix it, or anything. All I want at this point is for my server to start and things to be working the way they were before I tried messing with groups. Have been struggling with this for days. Please help!!
