System hangs "system message bus"


Once you have installed and switched to LDAP authentication the system may seem to hang on boot-up when the messagebus daemon tries to initialize. Though eventually after a very long time-out it will continue the boot process. This is related to authentication being required while messagebus daemon starts prior to the LDAP daemon. A quick work-around to solve this issue is to change the boot sequence, the messagebus daemon has to be started after the LDAP daemon. To accomplish this type:

mv /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S22messagebus /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S28messagebus
mv /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S22messagebus /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S28messagebus
chkconfig --level 4 messagebus off
