Description of problem:
Postfix will print following errors to /etc/log/maillog and will not deliver
mail to users.
Sep 8 21:49:42 telinux1 postfix/local: Unable to initialize connection
to NDS server
Sep 8 21:54:09 telinux1 postfix/pickup: NDS N4S: Error in retrieving
UNIX:Workstation object in NDS for the current Workstation
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Novell eDirectory 8.5.
2. Install Postfix.
We also see problems like this:
Sep 12 19:30:05 telinux1 postfix/master: warning:
process /usr/libexec/postfix/cleanup pid 1600 killed by signal 13
Sep 12 19:32:54 telinux1 postfix/master: warning:

Oct 12 00:53:44 telinux1 postfix/master: warning:
/usr/libexec/postfix/cleanup: bad command startup -- throttling
NDS problem is solved by killing Novell software time to time and restarting it.
Novell sucks. We removed eDirectory. Problem solved, I hope so.
