Hello :-)

We have been happily authenticating various clients against our openldap
install, including various Linux, Solaris & IRIX machines. Recently, a
department has been experimenting with authenticating Mac OS X clients
against our openldap servers, which has been causing slapd to fall over.

We were running 2.2.14, and have tried upgrading to 2.2.26 & 2.2.28, all
of which still crash.

The mac seems to be able to list users, but it is the final step of
actually authenticating that is causing slapd to fail. After some
googling, it looks like we're experiencing the same problem as

Has anyone else come across this, or know how to fix it? :-)

I suggest you do what I asked in my follow up to that question:


i.e., get the data on *why* slapd is crashing, and file an ITS with that information.
