Commands Reference, Volume 5

start-secldapclntd Command


The start-secldapclntd script is used to start the secldapclntd LDAP client daemon.


/usr/sbin/start-secldapclntd [ -C CacheSize ] [ -p NumOfThread ] [ -t CacheTimeOut ] [ -T HeartBeatIntv ]


The start-secldapclntd script starts the secldapclntd daemon if it is not running. It does not do anything if the secldapclntd daemon is already running. The script also cleans the portmapper registration (if there is any) from previous secldapclntd daemon process before it starts the secldapclntd daemon. This prevents the startup failure of the new daemon process from portmap-per registration failure.


By default, the secldapclntd daemon reads the configuration information specified in the /etc/security/ldap/ldap.cfg file at startup. If the following options are given in command line when starting secldapclntd process, the options from the command line will overwrite the values in the /etc/security/ldap/ldap.cfg file.

-C CacheSize Sets the maximum cache entries used by the secldapclntd daemon to CacheSize number of entries. Valid range is 100-10,000 entries for user cache. The default is 1000. The group cache entries will be 10% of the user cache entries.
-p NumOfThread Sets the number of thread used by the secldapclntd daemon to NumOfThread threads. Valid range is 1-1000. The default is 10.
-t CacheTimeout Sets the cache to expire in CacheTimeout seconds. Valid range is 60- 3600 seconds. The default is 300 seconds.
-T HeartBeatIntv Sets the time interval of heartbeat between this client and the LDAP server. Valid values are 60-3,600 seconds. Default is 300.


  1. To start the secldapclntd daemon, type:
  2. To start the secldapclntd with using 20 threads and cache timeout value of 600 seconds, type:
    /usr/sbin/start-secldapclntd -p 20 -t 600
    It is recommended that you specify these values in the /etc/security/ldap/ldap.cfg file, so that these values will be used each time you start the secldapclntd process.
