solaris 11 ldap client kick start

There's nothing more depressing than when you've got a console going and you see this course by when you do a warm restart of your Solaris 11 box:
svc.startd[44]: libsldap: Status: 2  Mesg: Unable to load configuration '/var/ldap/ldap_client_file' ('').
Say it ain't so. But it is.

Sadly, I've given up and trying to figure out what's wrong, because really, nothing's wrong at all. What'd I've done is throw in a kludge, sort of like what I used to have to do on Solaris 8, 9 and 10, to get my ldap clients running. Here's what I did:
  • Place a script in /etc/init.d and...
  • Place a symlink to said script in /etc/rc3/d.

    First get those ldap services running:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    # set up ldap
    svcadm enable network/ldap/client:default
    svcadm enable network/nis/domain
    svcadm enable dns/client
    svcadm refresh name-service/switch
    svcadm enable -r nfs/client
    
    exit
    
    Symlink it:
    # ln -s /etc/init.d/svc-start-ldapclient.sh /etc/rc3.d/S99svc-start-ldapclient
    
    That was easy.
