Issue :

Upgrading the Policy Server to R12.52 from R12.x, when I set multiple Policy Stores for failover purpose, the Policy Server fails to start. How can I solve it?

 

Environment :

Policy Server 12.52SP1CR01

 

Cause :


The LDAP Bind logic has changed and as such, the Ping timeout is now by default 10 seconds, which might need greater value in your environment.

 

Resolution :


To solve it, you have to tune the Ping Timeout :

Setting registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Netegrity\SiteMinder\
CurrentVersion\Debug
LDAPPingTimeout = 60; REG_DWORD 

The value might be less or greater depending your network latency and environment.
