Directory search order for Internet client authentication

If there more than one directory with a trusted naming rule that matches the user name, the server searches the directory with the most specific matching rule first. If directories have identical trusted naming rules that match the Internet user name, search orders assigned to the directories determine the order in which the server searches them.
