It was noticed that an incorrect search-base entry was configured in vas.conf.
search-base = OU=NIS_Maps,DC=MYDOMAIN,DC=COM
If the search-base cannot be found then the error will appear.
Use the following command to test the search-base entry:
# /opt/quest/bin/vastool -u host/ search -b "`/opt/quest/bin/vastool inspect vasypd search-base`" -s base "(objectClass=*)" dn
If it is a bad entry then it will produce an error, if it is a good entry then it will return the path.
Correct the search-base entry.
