We're going to have lots of users from different organizations in one LDAP directory and virtual servers would be a way to have a different basedn when searching for the user accounts for each organization. It isn't a necessity just one option we're looking at.

  There is no limit.  The virtual servers are placed into efficient data structures (trees) so that having 1000 is not much more expensive than having 1.

  That being said... 1000 seems a bit large.  Why do you need that many?
