Closed as program error.
IBM Tivoli Directory Server will take a very long time to come up if it is configured to use pass-through authentication with attribute mapping and the remote PTA server is down or unreachable. This happens even if the user has specified a valid value for the "ibm-slapdPtaResultTimeout" parameter
No known workarounds.
If attribute mapping is configured for pass-through authentication then ITDS performs a bind against the remote PTA server during start-up. The PTA code never passes the timeout value specified in the "ibm-slapdPtaResultTimeout" parameter in the LDAP handle. Hence the connect() system call is used in the blocking mode which waits for the system configured timeout value if the remote host is down or unreachable. If the system configured timeout for connect() call is large, the server start-up has to wait for that time period. The fix works by setting the user provided timeout value in the LDAP handle using the ldap_set_option() API.
