Cause:
Compatibility issues between SunOne LDAP server and RH 6.6
Problematic package: nss-softokn-freebl-3.14.3

Resolution:
Install ARC Service Pack (release date 02/2015):

ARC 4.1

Additional Information

Customers already upgraded to RH 6.6 and are not able to install the latest Service Pack, could temporarily downgrade the specific (problematic) package:

This will leave the OS version 6.6 only with the specific package from 6.5
