RE: Can't conntact LDAP server
I had the same problem on Red Hat 7.0, and what I had to do was to force a
host attribute into all the LDAP utilities.
So I would do a:
ldapsearch -h 127.0.0.1 -x -w "password" ... etc
Try doing that, and it may help. The test didn't work for me either, so I
would just ignore it. The server still came up fine and working. I
suspected on my side that it was a DNS problem, but I am still not sure.
Need a Linux administrator to take a look at the Red Hat installation. If I
find out more I will let you know.

Subject: Can't conntact LDAP server
I'm having difficulties as I try to install the OpenLDAP. I followed the
instructions in the OpenLDAP 2.0 Administration's Guide, have downloaded
the Prerequisits (OpenSSL, SASL, and the BerkeleyDB).
I try to run it on a Linux RedHat 7.0, which was installed as a
workstation, running for the moment as a stand-alone.
I did the following:
1. I used
2. I packed it out.
3. For OpenLdap and DB I run "./configure", which ends with
Please "make depend" to make dependencies
4. I build the software (make depend + make) and it takes some
5. As I try to run the tests, I get the following message "ldap_bind:
Can't contact LDAP server"
What I find very strange is that I managed to contact the server with a
browser, but as an anonymus.
I've read a lot of e-mails describing similar and very similar problems,
I applayed suggested solutions, which worked by others, but not on my
machine. In the /var/log/messages there is the famous IPv6-message
linux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module net-pf-10
But as I manage to get rid of it (with regex from
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/regex) I don't succed to repare my LDAP.
As I follow the "Admin's Guide" and nevertheless fail at early stage,
long before I ought to configure the DB and slapd.configure I can't
reffer to the most of the correspodence on the Internet.
Could it be that the RedHat - Installation as a Workstation and not as a
Server makes problems ?
If you can help, describe it in the still " for Dummies", because I'm
quite new in the field.
