System Administration Guide: Naming and Directory Services (DNS, NIS, and LDAP)

Running the ldap_cachemgr Daemon

Beginning with the Solaris 9 release, the ldap_cachemgr daemon must be running at all times. The daemon is required for the client to function properly. When you use the Service Management Facility's svcadm command to start the LDAP client, the ldap_cachemgr daemon is automatically invoked. See the ldap_cachemgr(1M) man page for more information.
