Smile your host may not be finding route to the LDAP Server

I am not sure if this solves your problem but in my case the host I was issuing ldapsearch from could not lookup my LDAP server. nslookup gave this error: ** server can't find TEST.MYDOMAIN.LOCAL: NXDOMAIN"

I got over this issue by adding an entry in my local /etc/hosts file, something like this TEST.MYDOMAIN.LOCAL

And querying status shows inactive:-

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Posting to a year-old thread with your own new question is considered as going against forum policy.

Open your own NEW thread in the forum. Use the forum for YOUR your distribution and supply more detail than just "unable to locate sldap.confi file". Fix the typing errors in that filename too please. A file with that name does indeed not exist.
