Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186448
boot process hangs with current init level
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fc5 openldap-servers release version 2.3.19
every time the machine boots
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fc5 with ldap auth in the same machine as the server runs.
2. boot the machine.
the machine hangs looking for the ldap service which is not already up.
the machine continue to boot and presents a login screen.
Modifying the init script to run at S12 alows the machine to boot fine.
During the fistboot auth config the machine hangs to.
I see this as well.
I've seen this since I've installed FC5.
Startup looks like its hung, but its waiting for a timeout. Once the timeout
expires, FC5 boots up fine.
I've been waiting for an openldap update.
I have found a solution to the extremely slow startup.
In /etc/ldap.conf, uncomment the following line
# Just assume that there are no supplemental groups for these named users
The solution was posted here:
Probably the same bug as 
please uncomment nss_initgroups_ignoreusers in default /etc/ldap.conf
This issue was solved in fc6 as Jan comment above.
