mailq doesn't work on LDAP enabled systems if nscd is not running
Last modified: 2008-07-15 11:09:12 EDT
Description of problem:
System used LDAP database for user authentication. If nscd is not running,
postfix claims about a failed bind and mailq won't work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always in case nscd is not running after postfix restart
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure use of LDAP with authconfig
2. do not start nscd
3. start postfix
mailq hangs, log tells all the time:
Aug 20 07:31:53 host postfix/showq: nss_ldap: failed to bind to LDAP
server ldap://ldapserver/: Can't contact LDAP server
Starting nscd and restarting postfix helps.
I am sorry, but nscd is needed to be able to use nss_ldap.
This is no postfix problem, closing as NOTABUG.
