I have been successfully using Squid 2.5.STABLE4 using squid_ladp_auth
authenticating against Windows 200 Active Directory without any problems
for a number of months. Following the upgrade of the domain to Windows
2003 server squid_ldap_auth appears to now only function intermittently

For example.

$ ./squid_ldap_auth -b "DC=MAN,DC=STC,DC=AC,DC=UK" -D
"CN=squiduser,CN=Users,DC=MAN,DC=STC,DC=AC,DC=UK" -w "password" -h
172.24.0.100 -u sAMAccountName -f sAMAccountName =%s cscott password OK
cscott password
squid_ldap_auth: WARNING, LDAP search error 'Operations error' OK cscott
password
squid_ldap_auth: WARNING, LDAP search error 'Operations error' OK

As squid_ldap_auth eventually returns an OK and ldapsearch works with
the same query I do not believe this problem to be related to security
permissions.

Any on the cause of this and how it can be resolved?


Thanks in advance
