|OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : OpenLDAP Software FAQ : Common Errors : ldap_*: Referral hop limit exceeded|
|This error generally occurs when the client chases a referral which
refers itself back to a server it already contacted. The server
responds as it did before and the client loops. This loop is detected
when the hop limit is exceeded.
This is most often caused through misconfiguration of the server's default referral. The default referral should not be itself:
That is, on ldap://myldap/ the default referral should not be
ldap://myldap/ (or any hostname/ip which is equivalent to myldap).
