pam_ldap_init:Setting eDir Sementics control failed. error

Hey There,

i have a 5 node-cluster running OES2 SP2 hosting several services, for example eDir, iPrint, Novell-DNS,
Novell-DHCP, file services, CIFS.......

A few days ago I recognized an error-message reoccurring, when particular services are being used:

mon: pam_ldap_init:Setting eDir Sementics control failed. error = -1 (nails)
smdrd[17435]: pam_ldap_init:Setting eDir Sementics control failed. error = -1 (smdr)
sshd[31142]: pam_ldap_init:Setting eDir Sementics control failed. error = -1 (ssh)

The mon-deamon is the monitoring-deamon of our McAfee Linux Shield, called nails (virus scan), the sshd message occures,
when a ssh-session is started and the smdrd-errormessage is thrown, when backup-jobs are starting.

I have already compared several configuration files with other OES2 SP2 server which aren't in our cluster, for example
/etc/pam.d/openwbem
/etc/pam.d/sshd
/etc/pam.d/nails
/etc/pam.d/tsafs
/etc/pam.d/common-password

/etc/nsswitch.conf
/etc/ldap.conf

I don't know where else I can try to find an answer. If anybody has an idea, thanks in advance.
Bye
David
