Last Modified: May 29, 2024

Affected Product(s):

Known Affected Versions:
F5OS-A 1.1.1

Fixed In:

Opened: Aug 18, 2022

Severity: 3-Major


The script that watches and restarts the nslcd process could sometimes fail to do so, and would sometimes log messages that appeared alarming.


The messages were benign, but the occasional failure to restart nslcd on config change could cause authentication changes to fail to propagate to the running process.


Changing authentication settings that affect nslcd.


Restarting the name-service-ldap container is likely to solve the issue.

Fix Information

The nslcd start/run script was rewritten to minimize alarming log messages and reliably start and restart the process when expected.
