Symptoms

The system log from either the BUI or CLI takes many minutes to load up the log on screen, the system log is filled up with errors like

Feb 16 12:37:53 s7000 sshd[27261]: [ID 587833 auth.error] passwdutil.so: can't get domain
Feb 16 12:37:58 s7000 sshd[27266]: [ID 587833 auth.error] passwdutil.so: can't get domain

An error is added to the log every time ssh is used to try and log in as a particular directory user that has been added to the appliance as an admin user.

e.g.

A user "user1" is added to the appliance for administration purposes, the properties for the "user1" user are pulled from a directory service.
