KB-2210: base.bind.healing messages in syslog or /var/log/centrifydc.log every 30 minutes

Authentication Service ,  

12 April,16 at 11:45 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl for UNIX/Linux
 
Question:
 
The following messages are in syslog or the centrify debug log every 30 minutes. What does this mean?
 
Oct 31 14:42:02 rwlp320 adclient[5967]: INFO <bg:bindingRefresh> base.bind.healing Lost connection to rwkdct34.proddfs.pf.yourcompany.com(GC). Running in disconnected mode: unlatch 
Oct 31 14:42:02 rwlp320 adclient[5967]: DEBUG <bg:bindingRefresh> base.bind.healing trying unexpected disconnect reconnect rwkdct34.proddfs.pf.yourcompany.com(GC) 
 
Answer:
 
The messages are coming from this config parameter in /etc/centrifydc/centrifydc.conf. 

# How often we attempt to re-establish ldap bindings to the preferred site after being forced to temporarily use non-preferred site ldap services (in minutes).  0 indicates no attempts 
 
adclient.binding.refresh.interval: 30 
 
These message are generally harmless as long as adclient does not go into a permanently disconnected state. This parameter can be changed to a higher value if one does not want the messages showing up in log file too often.

After the change, run "adreload" to make the change effective immediately.
