Thought here is we would like only specified servers to answer LDAP queries. All other servers should not respond. Refuse LDAP connections.

Right now, all OES (NW and Linux) make connections via LDAP browsers. How to turn off LDAP server on Linux OES1. On NW would just unload NDLAP, seems straight forward.

Some concern has been noted that this would adversely affect cluster services, but some thing that is strictly an edirectory affair, and LDAP has nothing to do with clustering.
