ldap authentification

Hi there,

I'm new with openldap and have a problem with the access to the
database. When I 
configure the slapd.conf with 
rootdn    uid=root, dc=test, dc=de
rootpw    test
everything works fine
but I want to use the /etc/passwd for authentification to the ldap
I tried the following for not storing the rootpw in slapd.conf

database        passwd
file            /etc/passwd
database        ldbm
suffix          "dc=test, dc=de" 
rootdn          "uid=root, dc=test, dc=de"
directory       /var/lib/ldap

I get the following message

ldap_bind:can't contact LDAP Server

What did I do wrong?

Thanx for help
