    Summary: slow ldap cause problems to samba, emails etc.

    Moved here, due to that, the topic is different.

    Problem was (amazingly) fixed by connecting the computer to the Internet.
    As it was the LDAP service that misbehaved I would very much like to see how she (the service) is connecting to the Internet.

    Here is the thread that I made while having this problem.
    Thread

    Is it at all possible that something is connecting "home" to Clear foundation?

    I have bean happily ignoring this problem since my last post, out of sight, out of mind.
    And now that has predictably bit me very hard on the ass!

    Server now takes about one hour to boot, is slow and mostly unusable.
    If clearos support was not so very expensive I would buy some help from them.

    Does anyone have any ideas???

    I get them too. And I do have auth problems (delays, retries, etc) that I never been able to solve.

    If the errors only occur at boot time it can be ignored.

    If you find a cause please let me know.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    Hello everyone,

    After digesting this thread I think there are two issues going on here.

    1.) The LDAP error occuring at boot up because the LDAP server is not running yet.
    2.) nss_ldap and saslauthd error during normal operations (after boot up is complete).

    I have two server running in a production environment and both are havving these issues. I am not so concerned about the boot up one but the other one is a problem.

    Every ten minutes or so I get the error string:

    Sep 8 18:30:01 server saslauthd[5592]: Retrying authentication
    Sep 8 18:33:34 server smbd[20367]: nss_ldap: could not search LDAP server - Server is unavailable
    Sep 8 18:33:40 server smbd[11403]: nss_ldap: could not search LDAP server - Server is unavailable
    Sep 8 18:35:01 server saslauthd[5595]: Retrying authentication
    Sep 8 18:38:10 server saslauthd[5594]: Retrying authentication
    Sep 8 18:38:20 server saslauthd[5592]: Retrying authentication


    I would realy like to get this resolved.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    KEvin

    It would appear from the following BugId 733 that the issue is still outstanding and the last update was 2009-02-22
