Any inputs on this one ?

The client timeout parameter works for individual search page or the entire time period of the search, if there are multiple pages ?

I am using openldap-2.4.39 on CentOS 7, to query my AD server, with python-ldap wrapper

I set the following scheme:

ldap.set_option(ldap.OPT_NETWORK_TIMEOUT, 30)
ldap.set_option(ldap.OPT_TIMEOUT, 120)
conn = ldap.initialize(ldap://server-ip)

Using 3 types of queries - synchronous search_s(), asynchronous with and without paging search_ext()

I am not using any timeout in the _ext method or the result3() methods

One of my python client LDAP searches(asynchronous with paging) took about 14 minutes to complete, in the customer environment. Eventually, the search was successful.

Looking at the documentation, I am not sure which timeout value would be applicable here.

I thought setting OPT_TIMEOUT should suffice for all kinds of searches.

And the strange thing is that the similar query, but synchronous(
ldap_search_ext_s) from my C client failed within 120 seconds. This is the default AD server timelimit. The C application didn't specify any timeouts

What am I missing here?
