Hi,

1. I have 3 computers (DC1, DC2 & DC3)
2. All computer in the same domain (for Networking); DC1 is in different subnet with DC3; and DC is functioning as a router (there is 2 Network cards at DC2);
3. I have tested that all the three computers can connect each other; i can ping DC3 from DC1 and vice versa; i believe that i do not have any problem related to NETWORKING things.
4. I installed the Lotus notes server 6.5 at DC1; the summary of the installation are as follows: a1) Server Name: Server1/BOBA, a2) Server Type: The first Server, a3) Data Directory: C:\Notes\Domino\Data, a4) Organization name: BOBA, a5) Domino Domain Name: BOBA, a6) ACL: prohibit anonymous access, a7) System Group: Local Domain Admins....
5. After completed the installation, it gave me the following error message: "LDAP server: Listener failure, TCP/IP port number [389] is already in use on this system.
Suspending listen task for 20 seconds due to network errors"
6. Any body can help to fix this ?
7. Thank you.

If you do not need LDAP then remove it from the tasks kine in the notes.ini.

Are yo runing any other LDAP service on the Server.
You should always turn off any unneeded services in both Windows and DOmino.

I hope this helps !

do you have Microsoft Active Directory on these servers? If so, AD uses LDAP as well and can conflict

My guess is you can turn it off, but depends on what you installed Domino for and intend to use it for.

tjie,

Just posting an update to this problem.  Removing the LDAP line in the ini file doesn't really stop the service.  What I did was leave it, but disable the ports in the server configuration document.   (running Windows 2003 server as domain server, so lsass.exe uses both the regular and ssl ldap ports)

Now, the ldap functions and processes continue to work, and you get a message in the log telling you the ports are disabled, but the rest of the tasks are operating.  So, the ldap listener doesn't ping you to death in the logs.

The other alternative is to change the ldap ports to some tcpip port around 10,000+ :)
