Randomly ldap and ndsd will crash on our SuSe server
when I try to restart ldap '/opt/novell/eDirectory/sbin/nldap -u' '-l'
I get the message "failed to start / stop / restart ldap"
trying to reboot ndsd hangs up
I have to kill the ndsd process or it will hang the server on reboot
ultimately having to reboot the server

in the message log this is what it is showing:
