Re: invalid credentials

There is an entry in slapd.conf file which is called rootpw
against which one must specify the rootdn's password. So in the
ldapadd command you specify -w option along with the password
that is ldapadd ... -w "password" or the other approach is use
-W ( capital ) in which case when the command is executed, the
user is prompted for entering the password.
