ldap_simple_bind_s problem with 64 bit compiled LDAP C SDK on Solaris 5.8

I've downloaded the ldap c sdk for 64 bits from the Sun site and am trying to run the examples. I've built them with the flags in the Makefile for Solaris 64 bits. When running the csearch example the ldap_simple_bind_s call fails. If I run the same example in 32 bit mode with the 32 bit libraries it works fine. Has anyone been able to get ldap_simple_bind_s to work in 64 bit mode with the ldap c sdk kit? If so, what compiler did you use and what were the options? I'm using Forte 6.2.

Thanks in advance.

I have not used Forte 6.2. to build 64 bit ldap_simple_bind_s bianry myself.

To use Forte compilers to build 64 bit binary, you need to complie with "-xarch=v9"
to produces 64 bit bianry. eg, setting CXXFLAGS to -xarch=v9 before   running configure .

see "Solaris 64 bit Developer's FAQ":
http://docs.sun.com/db/doc/806-0477/6j9r2e2bq?a=view

"Solaris 64-bit Developer's Guide"
http://docs.sun.com/db/doc/806-0477

If you want to use gcc to produce 64 bit binary, you need to use "-mcpu=v9 -m64" with gcc.

Thanks I am already using the -xarch=v9 flag with the Forte compiler. Have you gotten ldap_simple_bind_s to work with gcc with the 64 bit flags?

No, I have not tried it.

ldap_simple_bind_s shipped with Solaris OS, SUNWcsl (32-bit), SUNWcslx (64-bit).

I have found out that this is an existing bug in Solaris 5.8 ldap C SDK 64 bit libraries. Note: this is the downloaded ldap C SDK that has more functionality than the ldap libs that Sun provides with Solaris which are quite old.

The call to ldap_simple_bind_s is broken with this configuration.

If you are in this situation you can either upgrade to Solaris 9 which doesn't have this problem with the 64 bit libraries or call prldap_init instead of ldap_init as a workaround. This workaround will make the ldap_simple_bind_s call work. Sun may come out with a patch for the Solaris 5.8 64 bit libs but not sure if/when that will happen.

Do I get a discount for answering my own question? :-)
