Re: MAC OS X clients and OpenLDAP

I'm actually doing alot of work with OS X right now - 10.3.3 to be

I've not experienced the issue you are describing.  Does your OS 10
client receive the ldap servers via dhcp, and do you have them
configured in the Directory Manager application properly?

Dear List.

I have a strange problem with MAC clients trying to authenticate via
After rebooting MAC it takes some several minutes for the client to be
to log in with username and password stored in LDAP.
The MAC client refuses to log in with given username/password but it
after a short while.
Sometimes it tries to search for username in LDAP (and it gets results,
can see it in LDAP log file) but sometimes it does not even attempt to
connect to the server.
I'm running MAC OS X 10.3 with the latest patches and OpenLDAP 2.2.8 on
Solaris 9.

I understand that it perhaps more MAC-related question, but maybe
faced this problem in the past...

Thanks in advance for any hints.
