Greetings Rob,

1) Were you requesting the Role for 1 user at a time? How were you
making the requests: UI, REST, SOAP, do-add-role, via a Workflow (role
request object), ...etc?

2) What is the exact version of the User Application, Role Resource
Service Driver?

3) What is the patch level of the Engine?

4) Are you running on a physical server or a VM? How is the hard disk
configured for eDirectory?

5) Have you increased the memory for the Engine? If yes, to what?
