Re: Unable to find objects in database

I couldn't retrieve objects either.  My mistake was in outlook.  On the advance tab under accounts I had to put the following, turn on "simple search filter" and most importantly, "search base" should read something like "dc=example, dc=com".
Hope this helps.

Subject: Unable to find objects in database

Hi all,
This will probably be a typical newbie question.
I installed Openldap version 2.0.21 on my SuSE Linux machine. My aim is to provide a central addressbook for my SoHo network to complement my IMAP mailserver. Main client will be Outlook Express. I assume I will add inetOrgPerson objects. I noticed several things and cannot work my way out:
I can add dn's but cannot retrieve them with search commands or Outlook Express.
I can add only one entry per .ldif file. If I have several in a single file I only get the first one. So the ldif given below does not quite work.
I use the command line "slapadd -f slapd.conf -l familie.ldif". The slapcat command does list all added objects, but searches do not return any.
Any suggestions?
