Information in this document applies to any platform.
When patching to 22.214.171.124.0, the /etc/ ldap.conf and other authentication files are modified.
This change in behavior is part of a security enhancement.
The following lines are appended to your ldap.conf file.
FIPS 140-2 approved hashing has also been added to the pam functionality.
If you have LDAP setup on your Linux node and you are not able to log in, this may be the issue.
Upgrading to 126.96.36.199.0 from 188.8.131.52.1. Everything worked fine in 184.108.40.206.1.
