When we restart slapd the authenticator object is broken. The result of that is that we need to make some hack like that.

            # Quickfix: the old app_ssowatconf(auth) instruction failed due to
            # ldap restore hooks
            os.system('sudo yunohost app ssowatconf')

This issue also impact all test which are made after the backup test.


Use an authenticator which are able to make a new connection if the connection is lost.

0.1 sec for retry_delay sounds a bit short ? What about 0.5 ?

Well, maybe Yes.

I need to do some more test. I firstly tried with 10 (which is clearly too long). And the test failed because the connection was not re-establish yet.

So this parameter might depends of the processor. If the CPU is really quick it might be not too short.

Tested with 3 sec and it's also OK.

I purpose to put retry_max=10, retry_delay=0.5
