You need a "cn: administrators" value to match the specified DN.

This is odd, since the only difference between v184.108.40.206 and v220.127.116.11 is in
the debug log statements. But there is, unfortunately, an error that was
introduced in v18.104.22.168 which was in the 2.1.4 release. The fix is in the CVS
HEAD and in v22.214.171.124, which will be in the 2.1.5 release.

You should be able to do things exactly the same as in 2.1.3, but for this
error. Get the update and it will work.

Nothing to apologize for, your post was clear.
