@OP
Are you sure you're using openldap old style configuration through slapd.conf?
Chances are that your ldap server uses cn=config, so check under /etc/ldap/slapd.d for a file olcDatabase{X}hdb.ldif and change the olcRootPW value (that's the admin's password), after making a backup first.
Check this link too, for more details

Regards

Version differences

Thanks Chris and bathory,

I'm going over the link provided by Chris. It looks like this is a hazard of using an application version that's different from the one in the book (reference material)! I'd like to learn how to use and configure the latest stable release in any case. It look pretty different from what's in the book though.

I'll work on it a while and post later.

Cool Version issue

Chris and bathory,

Thank you both for your assistance.

I'm going through the tutorial here:

https://help.ubuntu.com/11.04/server...ap-server.html

and authentication is working. The version in the book and the version I am using were different and the two versions have different configuration files.

Sincerely,

Ted

Talking

After going round and round in google searches and forums. the solution is quite simple. Cut the rootpw shown and type a replacement password. Save the file, restart slap and you should be able to connect. you can generate an encrypted password later and paste it there.

Example below

rootdn cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com
rootpw ******
