DPS fails to create an initial pool of connections to an LDAP data source due to a connection timeout.

The following message will be written in the DPS errors log:

When the DEBUG log level is enabled, the full Java stack will look like:

Exception thrown from thread main$



This issue might start to happen after an upgrade to DPS or later.

In these versions, the default value of the DPS configuration attribute "backendMaxSocketWaitTimeInMilliSec" has decreased from 2000 ms to 200 ms.
