ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)
I have searched several posting on this message and I am still getting the error when I attempt to do an "ldapsearch"

I have changed the slapd.conf to use a plain-text password and I am still getting the error. I have also made sure that there are no blank spaces in the file. I have attempted to follow the LDAP setup from "". The log file shows and iptables is turned off.

conn=1001 fd=15 ACCEPT from IP=[::1]:54486 (IP=[::]:389)
conn=1001 op=0 BIND dn="cn=Manager,dc=domain,dc=local,dc=pt" method=128
conn=1001 op=0 RESULT tag=97 err=49 text=
conn=1001 fd=15 closed (connection lost)

my server is running Centos 6.4 64.

below are the commands I am using
"ldapsearch -x -D cn=Manager,dc=domain,dc=local,dc=pt -w abc"

my slapd.conf file
database bdb
suffix "dc=domain,dc=local"
checkpoint 1024 15
rootdn "cn=Manager,dc=domain,dc=local"
rootpw abc

"cn=Manager,dc=domain,dc=local,dc=pt" is clearly NOT "cn=Manager,dc=domain,dc=local"

needs to match

suffix "dc=domain,dc=local"


rootdn "cn=Manager,dc=domain,dc=local"

Also when you do the ldapsearch
use quotes
so it looks like this:

ldapsearch -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=domain,dc=local,dc=pt" -w abc

Sorry I meant

"ldapsearch -x -D cn=Manager,dc=domain,dc=local -w abc"

And I still get the same issue.

what version of openldap are you using? The slapd.conf file itself was deprecated a while back, and you should now be configuring it within a standard ldif file, although off hand I'm not sure of it's name / location.

I am running CentOS 6.4 and installed it via yum. not sure which version got installed. Is there a link or instructions on setting up an ldap on 6.4 without the slapd.conf file.
