Configures the LDAP query timeout interval from 1 - 5 seconds (default is 2 seconds)

When enabled, LDAP service allows the AP or controller to bind with the LDAP server and query it for user details. The LDAP query timeout is the interval between a request to and the response from the LDAP server. Once this interval is exceeded, the LDAP bind and query is timed out.
