i'm using Active Directory as authentication mechanism and tomcat is my application server .

How do we add mutiple groups to be linked to same security role in web.xml of an-application in tomcat.

an evrything runs fine when one security role is tagged to one groups tagged to same security role.i get authorization error only when i tag multiple groups to same security role

eg: part of my web.xml--> which gives error

<security-role-ref>
<role-name>ADMIN</role-name>
<role-link>admin_from_department_1</role-link>
</security-role-ref>
<security-role-ref>

<security-role-ref>
<role-name>ADMIN</role-name>
<role-link>admin_from_department_2</role-link>
</security-role-ref>
<security-role-ref>

eg: part of my web.xml--> which works with no error

<security-role-ref>
<role-name>ADMIN</role-name>
<role-link>admin_from_department_1</role-link>
</security-role-ref>
<security-role-ref>

<security-role-ref>
<role-name>DIFFERENT_ROLE</role-name>
<role-link>admin_from_department_2</role-link>
</security-role-ref>
<security-role-ref>

what is the difference ? i cannot add people from dept1 and dep2 as ADMIN
thanks in advance for any pointers
