IO17838: TDS Server takes long time to start if PTA server is down

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • 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
    

Local fix

  • No known workarounds.
    

Problem summary

  • 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.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix for this APAR will be contained in the following
    maintenance packages:
    | interim fix | 6.3.0.22-ISS-ITDS-IF0022 |
