Before configuring LDAP objects, verify that the LDAP server is loaded and functional. This section explains how to verify that the LDAP server is loaded. To verify that the server is running and functional, see Section 16.3, Verifying That the LDAP Server Is Running.

Click> > > .
On thetab, scroll to , then view the column.
The column displays Running.
You can also use NetIQ iManager.
Click thebutton .
Select a connection, server, or DNS name or IP address, then click.
Provide your password, then click.
The Module Information section displays nldap.nlm in the filename field.
To verify if the LDAP Server is running, run the following command:
ndstrace -c modules | grep nldap
If the LDAP server is not loaded or running, an error appears stating that the nldap module is not loaded.
You can also use the following options:
To check if LDAP server is running and listening on the SSL port, run the nldap -s command.
To check if LDAP server is running and listening on the TCL port, run the nldap -c command.
These will list all the instances of eDirectory running with out any error. If the LDAP server is not loaded and not listening on either of the ports, the above commands display the error -255 (ensure that LDAP Server is running).
