I have two sles10sp1/oes2 servers. I have checked everything that I can think of to compare the two and they appear identical for the relevant files, but I don't get the same behavior. I am simply running ./tsatest. Server 1 can run it with root as the user or admin.o, but server 2 will only work with root. when admin.o is used it says "faild to connect target service" username or password invalid".

i compared the following and they are the same:

one odd thing. the server that does work right, reports that the same ldap server in nam.conf is a non-replica server and disables persistent search. they are using the same server and it IS a replica server.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
