how to stop HPSM from ldap referral chasing.
could someone please explain what does referral chasing mean.
thanks in advance
Go to Solution.
I found a doc that has some reference in it
I am attaching this document
This is a known defect and it is fixed by QCCR1E78435 "RTE overwrites the local configuration of the OpenLDAP REFERRALS option and always sets it to true".
All of this CR do is correctly restoring the setting value of LDAP_OPT_REFERRALS after build the LDAP connection.
It is released in SM9.30P4HF4 and 9.31GA.
the oringinal setting is in ldap.conf, .ldaprc - LDAP configuration file/environment variables.
Just to let you know, the knowledge document is ready:

You can provide your feedback here in this discussion, you can also provide feedback from the document page itself.
Hi Yan Tong,
unfortunately I don't have rights to access the KM you mention.
We're having an issue with LDAP referrals in our Windows SM 9.40 installation and I'd like disable referral chasing in LDAP queries. Could you please provide me the details?
Thanks in advance!
You need to have a HP support contract to access KMs. If you do have a support contract, speak to the HP Sales Rep for your System Agreement ID to gain permission.
I've figured out the steps myself. I'll list them here:
* create an ldap.conf somewhere (i.e. same folder as sm.ini, though it can be anywhere). Place this content only:
* define a Windows system variable LDAPCONF whose value matches the path of the file created
* restart SM
This should work fine for Unix as well since this setting is read by OpenLDAP library.
