Question ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49) on OpenLDAP server


I am attempting to add a user to my LDAP database. I just set it up and am really confused by what is causing this error:
ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)

Any help?

normally means an invalid password or generally incorrect details, illegal binddn for example

do you see anything wrong with this ldap.conf?

# LDAP Defaults

host 10.1.10.15
base dc=orca,dc=affinitygs,dc=com
binddn "cn=root,dc=orca,dc=affinitygs,dc=com"
bindpw password
ssl no


this is the line I am attempting to execute:

ldapadd -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=orca,dc=affinitygs,dc=com" -W -w secret -f/etc/openldap/myldif.ldif
