Policy server fails to complete the LDAP search quires when connecting to LDAP sunone Directory server or Redhat Directory Servers and throws below error:
[14725/-382837872][Tue May 22 2012 10:49:34][CA.XPS:LDAP0014][ERROR] Error occurred during "SearchExt" for "(xpsNumber=*)", text: Timed out
[14725/-407159920][Tue May 22 2012 11:08:50][CA.XPS:LDAP0014][ERROR] Error occurred during "SearchExt" for "(&(xpsNumber=*)(!(xpsCategory=1))(modifytimestamp>=0))", text: Timelimit exceeded
This indicates the search policy server was doing was not completed and timed out. This will make policy server slow when we make some changes specially through WAMUI.
The solution to these errors add the below registry entry in sm.registry for Linux or add in registry for windows,
SearchTimeout= 0x258; REG_DWORD
This will increase the LDAP search time, this can be more depending upon the envirnoment. LDAP servers may need to be tuned more.
