Ldap_bind: Invalid credentials


Hi ALL,

I am new to Ldap and possibly linux. But I have been trying to use the Ladpadd of open ldap by following all the examples I found on the internet including the one that was given on the open ldap webpage but I keep on getting the same error which is ldap:bind invalid credential (49).

I have used the rootpw as secret and I have used the encrypted one using the slappasswd but I keep on getting the same error over and over again. Can somebody help me with this.

This is my slapd.conf file may be I am doing something wrong

What is the exact ldapadd command you use?
Try something like:
Code:
ldapadd -vx -D "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com" -W -f somefile.ldif
