Ticket #260 (closed defect: wontfix)
LDAP backend doens't try to reestablish connection once lost
|Reported by:||anon||Owned by:||norbert|
Whenever I restart our LDAP server that holds the DNS records, PowerDNS is unable to answer any more queries because apparently it makes no attempt to reestablish its connection to the LDAP server once it has been lost.
There is a comment in line 187 of ldapbackend.cc that suggests a reconnect mechanism was intended, but never implemented. It's kind of stupid/annoying/error-prone having to restart PowerDNS every time the LDAP server goes down.
