ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)


I'm just stumped and could use some seasoned eyes and minds to review why I'm getting "ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)" error when I attempt ldapmodify -v -x -D "cn=someuser,dc=iqonq,dc=com" -W

Prior to entering the above I used slappasswd to create a new password and entered it into my /etc/openldap/slapd.conf file. Here's an example of my slapd.conf (that's not the real rootpw):
Code:
# Allow LDAPv2 client connections.  This is NOT the default.
allow bind_v2

pidfile         /var/run/slapd.pid
argsfile        /var/run/slapd.args

access to dn.base=""
        by * read

access to attr=sambaPasswordHistory
        by self write
        by * auth

access to attr=sambaLMPassword
        by self write
        by * auth

access to attr=sambaNTPassword
        by self write
        by * auth

access to attr=userPassword
        by self write
        by * auth

access to attr=shadowLastChange
        by self write
        by * auth

access to *
        by * read


#######################################################################
# BDB database definitions
#######################################################################

database        bdb
suffix          "dc=iqonq,dc=com"
rootdn          "cn=Manager,dc=iqonq,dc=com"

# Cleartext passwords, especially for the rootdn, should
# be avoid.  See slappasswd(8) and slapd.conf(5) for details.
# Use of strong authentication encouraged.
rootpw          {SSHA}95WxN9j4BwXpxqavygLzjb8quzrfC87J

# The database directory MUST exist prior to running slapd AND
# should only be accessible by the slapd and slap tools.
# Mode 700 recommended.
directory       /var/lib/ldap

# Indices to maintain
index   objectClass     eq
After entering the SSHA password into the slapd.conf file I restart the ldap service:
Code:
service ldap restart
Which returns:
Code:
Stopping slapd:                                            [  OK  ]
Checking configuration files for slapd:  config file testing succeeded
                                                           [  OK  ]
Starting slapd:                                            [  OK  ]
Finally at this point I issue the command
Code:
ldapmodify -v -x -D "cn=someuser,dc=iqonq,dc=com" -W
and enter the password I just defined when I ran the slappasswd command. What I get in return is:
Code:
ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)
This is driving me crazy! Can someone help me pick through this?

Many advTHANKSance!!!

Hi,

Quote:
I attempt ldapmodify -v -x -D "cn=someuser,dc=iqonq,dc=com" -W
According to slapd.conf rootdn is "cn=Manager,dc=iqonq,dc=com".
So change rootdn in ldapmodify

Regards

(insert sound of deflated Linux and LDAP newbie banging head on wall here)

THANK YOU bathory!

I was under the under-educated assumption that the username after "cn=" was supposed to be the name of the user I was trying to modify.
