Can you elaborate on the Solaris 9 threading problems? I've got an OpenLDAP server running on Solaris 9 that needs to go live in the near future. Should I downgrade to Solaris 8 to avoid trouble?

It always depends on how you build your OL package. My issues came with SASL & GSSAPI binds. I always advocate doing stress testing of the server to see if there are issues to be aware of. I found OL to be unstable when combined with SASL/GSSAPI on Solaris 9.
