Interesting glitch when SSPR uses an LDAP source with no eDirectoryreplica

I noticed an issue with my SSPR server where users could log on
normally, but when they changed their password, they got "SSPR 5017 --
Directory Not Found." The password change did complete successfully, but
the error message made it look like it had failed.

I was stumped until I remembered that I had recently removed the R/W
replica from the server that I was using as my LDAP source in
preparation for an OS upgrade.

Just throwing this out there in case it saves someone else some
