This configuration parameter specifies the time, in seconds, the agent will wait for a socket connection timeout during LDAP binding.

In most cases, you set this configuration parameter using group policy. You can, however, set it manually in the configuration file if you are not using group policy or want to temporarily override group policy.

If you are manually setting this parameter, the parameter value must be a positive integer greater than zero. For example:

adclient.ldap.socket.timeout: 30

If this parameter is not defined in the configuration file, its default value is 5 seconds.
