Hi,

this is most likely caused by the fact, that nss is queried for user information while ldap is not yet up and running.

There should be some kind of blacklist option in you nss_ldap.conf (or how the file is named) that you can use to prevent nss_ldap lookup for some known users. You should add the any user here that is used to start a service prior to your ldap server.

Best Regards,
Holger
