Many "connection_read(): no connection!" warnings from OpenLDAP server when using ldapi:/// and a bind DN (no external authentication)
Reported upstream at http://
Many "connection_read(): no connection!" warnings are written to /var/log/debug and /var/log/syslog by slapd. As stated at http://
This appears to be an issue with the libldap client library provided by OpenLDAP itself (2.4.21), and not the slapd daemon.
Issue is reproducible even by just using "ldapsearch -H ldapi:///", but only if a bind DN is specified (-D) and external authentication is not used.
Running slapd with logging enabled (-d 8) shows the attached 3 sequences - ldapsearch command followed by the slapd logs. Note that the "connection_read(): no connection!" is only visible on the middle pair.
If this can't / won't be fixed in the client library, the logging of the "connection_read(): no connection!" event from slapd should at least be demoted to a lower level so that it doesn't fill the default logging output, without having to change the overall configured logging level and potentially missing other logged events that do require attention.
