  • Slow IDP server authentication request processing
  • No high utilization
  • No configuration changes have been applied to NAM
  • Several UserStores have been configured


  • In most of the cases this is caused by LDAP (userstore) servers not reachable. Please review your userstore configuration and make sure all LDAP server configured are up and running

  • Make sure LDAP server can be revolved by DNS reverse lookups. Taking a LAN trace will show DNS reverse lookup failing for LDAP servers configured. As a workaround a local hosts file entry will fix the problem as well
