Re: openldap and heimdal persistent connection

We're currently running openldap 2.2.20 with the back-hdb ldap backend.
It's being used as a proxy to forward ldapi queries from heimdal 0.6.3's
backend to a Sun Directory Server 5.2 which doesn't natively support ldapi.

Sun Directory Server 5.2 doesn't support a *lot* of things... Why are you guys still using that?

It seems that the connection is persistent such that restarting the Sun
Server requires us to then restart openldap in order to make heimdal work
properly again.

Is there any way around this so that openldap doesn't require restarting
each time someone restarts the Sun dierctory?

Use a newer version of OpenLDAP. In current versions back-ldap will automatically retry if a connection fails. OpenLDAP 2.2.20 has long been obsolete. (SunDS 5.2 is pretty obsolete too...)

Thanks for any info.
