We have enabled LDAP for our gitlab community edition install. Our problem is that we have to login twice, the first time we login we ALWAYS get the “connection dropped by peer” message, but the second time we login, it talks to our AD just fine.
We noticed that if we setup a cron for: gitlab-rake gitlab:ldap:check and run that once a minute, we NEVER get the connection dropped by peer message.
Its like gitlab has to talk with Active Directory constantly, or it will lose the connection and we will get the “connection dropped by peer” message. We have many other services that authenticate with active directory with no issues. I am unsure where to begin troubleshooting as this is my first time installing Gitlab. gitlab-ctl tail doesnt provide me with anything more than the error message we get when we try to login gives us. I’ve followed everything google searching has to offer so I figured I would turn to the experts . thank you!
