[sudo-users] LDAPS + sudo + AIX 7.1

I am sorry if I am not allowed to revive an old thread. I noticed today that sudo is not detecting multiple URIs in /etc/ldap.conf .
uri ldap://ldapserver1 ldap://ldapserver2
With the first setup only the first server is used.
sudo: uri ldap://ldapserver1 ldap://ldapserver2
sudo: ldap_init (ldapserver1 ldapserver2, 389)
With the second setup only the second server is used.
sudo: uri ldap://ldapserver1
sudo: uri ldap://ldapserver2
sudo: ldap_init (ldapserver2, 389)
According to the Sudoers man page I should be able to use either of these stanzas to have sudo attempt to connect to both ldap servers.
This is the same code setup from this thread if anyone wants history on my AIX setup. Any help would be appreciated. :o)
