LDAP profile refresh may store the incorrect IP-address in "NS_LDAP_SERVERS= 0.0.0.0" in the /var/ldap/ldap_client_file

Information in this document applies to any platform.
If the LDAP client on a Solaris 11 system had become configured to use a LDAP client profile that does contain of an attribute/value pair for preferredServerList, but no attribute/value pair for defaultServerList, then the LDAP client recreate the /var/ldap/ldap_client_file configuration file with the incorrect IP-address "0.0.0.0" in the parameter NS_LDAP_SERVERS, and also import that incorrect IP-address into the properties of the SMF service svc:/network/ldap/client:default.
This configuration change, that does automatically happen every time when the LDAP client performs a profile refresh (which by default is on every 12 hours) may cause other SMF services that do depend on LDAP, such as the SMF service svc:/network/nfs/client:default, to get restarted.
Example for such a profile:
After having become configured and enabled with that once, the LDAP client will refresh this configuration on every time when the profileTTL expires.
