Symptoms

With Directory Services Markup Language (DSML) service enabled, when performing a client search with a POST request, the search is successful and the log file shows:
...
[07/Jun/2010:16:04:00 -0400] conn=5317 op=0 msgId=-1 - protocol=HTTP host="xyz.domain.com:1080" remlog="-" uname="admin" date="[Mon, 07 Jun 2010 20:04:00 GMT]" request="POST / HTTP/1.0" status="200 OK" length=796 dn="uid=admin,ou=system,ou=users,dc=xyz,dc=domain,dc=com"
...
 
However, when a client uses a GET request, the search fails and the following error is shown in the log file:
