Re: One last problem...

This was exactly the problem! I changed

access to *
       by self write
       by users read
       by users write
       by anonymous read   <<< this said "by anonymous auth"

Now it works fine. I still don't know why I need to be root to do it though... I'm not quite sure why I'm considered anonymous. Who is Self, users? I hope it's in the manual...

Thanks Very much! Who says OpenSource support is not as good as M$. M$ support really sucks compared to this...

What am I doing wrong?

Read the section on the "access" option in the /etc/openldap/slapd.conf. You probably have access permissions set up such that you can only get search results if you "bind" as an authorized user, but you are doing ldapsearch as "anonymous" (meaning, without doing a bind).

	The manual covers things pretty well.  However, we had to play
around with it to see exactly how it worked the first time we set it up.
Set aside 3-5 hours to just futz around with the 'access' option, see what
works and what doesn't, and at the end of the day you'll be an expert.
