We recently added our first OES2 box into the tree. everything seemed to be fine. Until we recently started depending on it for LDAP auth. Now we have been making changes through LDAP for password changes. These worked fine prior to changing over to the OES2 Server.

What happens now.

LDAP seems to go off line about once ever 48hrs we can restart Namc or reboot and functionality is back.
We also have been seeing strange issues with not everything being synced with EDIR. seems that password changes and user changes don't replicate to everything else.
we have experimented with nam config and tried multiple things. we don't seem to see anything in any logs that show a failure.
