openLDAP issues with address book

Greetings to all the l33t hax0rs or whatever they are these week.

haven't been here in a long time, because I haven't needed help. but I'm just stuck here with this open ldap. some info:

OS: centos 4
openldap version: latest on yum
my os: os X 10.4
for management, i am using phpLDAPadmin.

the issue: I can't connect my address book to LDAP. it makes a connection, but it NEVER returns any results. this is with "address book" but was happening just the same with thunderbirds addressbook. no matter what entry I make, or how I make it, it never picks it up. yet, I see it searching for ir when I have slapd in debug mode.

Now when I connect to, I CAN return results.

so I used a java LDAP browser to take a look at hw the entries are formatted versus how mine are.

and I WAS going to tell you how there are more objectClasses than the entries I create, however I just took a quick look again and I'm able to pull up a user in the search who only has the following info:

objectclass (organizationalrole)

and the addressbook app was able to find it. (this is through the

so now I'm TOTALLY lost as to why I can't find users in my LDAP. I've created users through phpldapadmin for simply address book, address book (mozilla) user accounts, and custom. I've also created them with the java LDAP brower and STILL cannot turn up any results.

I'm also running wildfire (a jabber server) and wildfire can communicate correctly with openldap for seeing new users and authenticating them with the directory.

So I really don't know what to think. slapd config file issue? though I must admit there was very minimal editing done to it.

please answer us this:-
1. Your openldap database currently have any record?
2. In your slapd.conf, is there any line(with string) start with white space " " or a 'tab'?
3. Have you check whether your ldap start correctly?
