Currently, we have a home grown application that allows users to enable/disable vacation messages for their Cyrus accounts. This application is old and outdated, and needs to be replaced. I found the Horde vacation application which looks like it will meet my needs, but I have one issue. We currently have three Cyrus servers with all the accounts spread out across those three servers. The problem I am running into with any vacation application, is how to identify to the vacation application which server a user is on without the user needing to know this information. Is anyone else in a similar situation?
Um, use a murder?  Otherwise you may want to adapt something like the 
cyrus user validation script which was recently posted here.  Your 
application could then perform lookups in the output of that script.  
Lastly, you could just let you application attempt authenticating 
against each server, in turn, stopping once it succeeds.
