Been running into issues lately with Sametime and LDAP. The Sametime is version 8.0.2 running on Domino of the same version. The issue occurs whenever the LDAP server gets rebooted. The LDAP service on the Domino server isn't able to re-establish the connection to the LDAP server when it comes back up. Restarting the LDAP service on Domino doesn't re-establish the connection either. To solve the issue, the entire Domino service needs to be restarted.
This can't be the norm for working with LDAP. Is there something I am missing that will resolve the issue? I will keep investigating.
