Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server users of   *
    *                  federated LDAP repositories                 *

    *                      experience intermittent LDAP            *
    *                      connection failures with several        *

    ****************************************************************
    If several new concurrent LDAP requests experience errors
    connecting to Ldap and then successfully connect to LDAP (for
    example, during server start up, initial LDAP requests fail),
    a later failure and recovery connecting to LDAP could result in
    an exception where the cause by exception
    is java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Illegal Capacity: -11
    (or any negative number).
