Description Axel Thimm 2009-02-07 04:42:28 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #206399 +++

Description of problem:
The script /etc/init.d/messagebus hangs during bootup if the system is
configured for LDAP authentication. Disabling LDAP authentication solves the


The problems described in the bug above exist in RHEL5 since 5.0.

If the server rebooting is ldap-serving itself, dbus hangs during reboots. In a debugging session, ensuring that ldap starts before messagebus solved the issue.

So it either needs a reordering of the boot sequence of the services (e.g. move ldap to the front of any consuming service), or some nss_ldap magic.

The fix was in the /etc/ldap.conf.rpmnew file. Sorry for the noise.
