Symptoms


Operations error when running ldapsearch and ldapmodify against DS 5.X. Now all apps that require Directory server authentication are failing in their Production environment.


# ./ldapsearch -b o=com -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j ******* uid=userOne-j


ldap_search: Operations error



Also: ldapmodify command, the answer is the following:

ldap_modify: Operations error

Because of this behavior all application experiencing failures in authentication against directory services in productive environment.
