I'm seeing lots of errors like this in /var/log/messages on my DSfW server:

Nov 6 10:25:50 delta /usr/sbin/namcd[4115]: Error [87] in LDAP search
while trying to fill passwd structure :
filter=uid=MYDOMAIN\USERNAME,base=ou=novell,o=mydo main

This error happens when user is logging in. Login takes a long time
(approximately a minute), looks like the process is waiting to look up
something via LDAP and failing. However, finally the login seems to succeed.

I used the LDAP check from TID7001884 and this seems to work successfully:

# export LDAPCONF=/etc/opt/novell/xad/openldap/ldap.conf
# ldapsearch -Y EXTERNAL -LLL -b
cn=Administrator,cn=users,dc=mydomain,dc=com sAMAccountName
SASL/EXTERNAL authentication started
SASL username: gidNumber=0+uidNumber=0,cn=peercred,cn=external,cn =auth
dn: cn=Administrator,cn=Users,dc=mydomain,dc=com
sAMAccountName: Administrator

What's up?
