Re: using openldap with mac os x clients

I'm having trouble getting my openldap server to work with mac clients.

When I try to authenticate a mac os x client (OS 10.3) against
openldap (2.2.24), the openldap server crashes. I can successfully
authenticate fc3 clients. I can also successfully do an ldapsearch
from the mac. So _something's_ working, clearly. The openldap server
is running on RH9.

Does anyone have any advice about how I can solve this problem? I am
new to openldap so any clues will be welcome.

Well, a search shouldn't crash a server. However, there was a faulty patch that made it into 2.2.24 that might be the culprit. Have you tried OpenLDAP 2.2.26 or OpenLDAP 2.2.27? They do not have that patch in them.

I've been able to set up OS X to query against an OpenLDAP server without issue.
