You can't logon with the LDAP rootdn.  It has just enough information to
allow binding to LDAP, and that's it.  It doesn't have a shell or a home
directory or shadow password data.  Try adding a user in LDAP (for
example, using CPU <http://cpu.sourceforge.net/>) and see whether you
can log on as that user.  Have you run the migration scripts yet?  If
so, you could also try deleting a user out of the flat files and seeing
whether you can still log in as that user.
