(ITS#8397) Unable to start LDAP Service in Windows

Full_Name: charisse.ann.m.jorge
Version: 2.3.7
OS: Windows
URL: ftp://ftp.openldap.org/incoming/
Submission from: (NULL) (


we are experiencing the same issue as ITS#6106, the only difference is our LDAP
Version is 2.3.7.

1) Start the LDAP Service in Windows
2) System will prompt error:
   Windows could not start the Hyperion Foundation OpenLDAP on local computer.
For more information, review the system event log. If this is non-Microsoft
Service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code

3) Go to Windows Event Viewer, System Log
   Notice that there's an error log with description:
   The Hyperion Foundation OpenLDAP Service terminated with service-specific
error 16

i tried running slapd.exe -d -1

E:\Hyperion\products\Foundation\openLDAP>slapd.exe -d -1
