I am trying password protect my ldap directory. With no access lines
in the slapd.conf, I am able to search fine, anonymously.
I have the following in my slapd.conf
access to *
by dn=".+, dc=amsite, dc=com" read
I have populated the database with the field userPassword.
I am trying to log in to the database. I tried
ldapsearch -D "cn=User, dc=mydomain dc=com" -b "dc=mydomain, dc=com" -W
I got the following error:
ldap_bind: Inappropriate authentication
also I tried:
ldapsearch -D "cn=User" -b "dc=mydomain, dc=com" -W
and the error:
ldap_bind: Invalid credentials
I am trying also to connect to the directory with Netscape. Netscape
wants email address and password. does the email address have to be
part of the dn?
