SOLVED : pam_ldap: error trying to bind as user

If you are getting error below after giving the correct password

Nov  2 03:56:42 testserver sshd[30173]: pam_ldap: error trying to bind as user "uid=testuser,ou=People,dc=test,dc=testdomain,dc=com" (Invalid credentials)

Nov  2 03:56:43 testserver sshd[30173]: Failed password for testuser from port 51306 ssh2

Reason: Password is not syncing properly to all client server during the scheduled window

Solution : Restart the slapd service on LDAP server & it will sync to all server.

#/etc/init.d/slapd restart

Hope it helps.
