Description
Site Server LDAP Service cannot initialize the following object:  GetLastError()=997 : Init LdapExtension.
Comments
 
This problem occurs when you attempt to connect to the SQL Server computer using a SQL Server alias name and you have Microsoft Data Access Components version 2.1 SP2 installed on your Site Server computer. See ME239855 to solve this problem.
As per Microsoft: "In Site Server 3.0 SP4 and later, the LDAP_ANONYMOUS account is recreated each time LDAPSVC is started. When the local account is recreated, it uses the guest account as a template. The LDAP_ANONYMOUS account has the same settings as that of the guest account; however, the account is not disabled even if the guest account is disabled. To resolve this problem, set the guest account so that it is not locked out". See ME305082 for more details.
As per Microsoft, the Microsoft SQL Server driver assumes that the NetBIOS service is started. If this service is not started, the LDAP service stops responding when it tries to access the remote SQL Server database. After you install the patch, the only way to have the NetBIOS service start automatically is to have the Messanger or Plug and Play services start automatically. See the link below.
