I assume you're referring to the rootpw in slapd.conf... if rootpw is "secret", that ***is*** the clear-text password. Otherwise, the password is whatever was added to the directory for the binddn you're using on the ldapadd command line.

If you're working with a basic default install and haven't yet changed the password in slapd.conf (which you should do ASAP), the correct command line is "ldapadd -D rootdn-from-slapd.conf-goes-here -w rootpw-from-slapd.conf-goes-here
