Exploring SunOne Directory server is very slow or appears to hang.
This is caused by server-side sorting which is not supported by the Java Connector Server (JCS).
The solution is to turn off the paging/server-side-sorting:
<property name="allowMetadataModify"><value>true</value></property><!-- add this --><property name="forcePagedResults"><value>false</value></property>
Doing this will turn off paging for ALL the JNDI connectors hosted by the target JCS.
