I will need to follow up with our network group and test the behavior of the load balancer in the scenario. However, a response timeout can certainly be caused by an underlying network problem as opposed to an LDAP search problem. It seems how to handle it should at the least be a configurable option? I know my LDAP servers are not missing any indexes, if a query times out it is a transient problem and should be retried before considered a hard failure…
