Re: openldap woes -- linux
What is the exact syntax of your 'ldapadd' command? Are you typing it as
shown below, or are you replacing the examples with your data? Are you
removing the "<" and ">" characters?
Also, what password are you trying to use? I believe the default is
ldapadd -D "cn=Manager, dc=amazon, dc=com" -W < myldif.ldif
