Hello Chee Wai,

I run the ladpadd command as you says. with 'Test2.ldif' <Which consists of
Root dn > and 'Test1.ldif' <Which consists of sub dns>

now path given in slapd.conf filled with following details (i.e

[root@devserv Lucid]# ls -l
total 168

-rw-------    1 root     root        20480 Jun  3 11:06 objectClass.bdb

While running ldapadd I got some output. I am attaching that output with
this mail for analysis

If I run search command I got the following information. (Success

[root@devserv stixen]# /usr/local/bin/ldapsearch  -D
"cn=Lucid,o=stixen.co.uk,c=uk"  -b "o=stixen.co.uk,c=uk" -x -w secret
# extended LDIF
# LDAPv3
# base <o=stixen.co.uk,c=uk> with scope sub
# filter: ojectclass=*
# requesting: ALL

# search result
search: 2
result: 0 Success

# numResponses: 1

But if I tried to search other entires like may name

[root@devserv Lucid]# /usr/local/bin/ldapsearch  -D
"o=stixen.co.uk,c=uk"  -b "cn=Shreedhar B,c=uk" -x -w secret 'ojectclass=*'
ldap_bind: Inappropriate authentication (48)

May I know what is the problem in this.

Many Many thanks for your kind cooperation.


Hi Sreedhar,

compare your 1st ldapsearch with the 2nd one. You'll see that you misspelled the bin-dn '-D' in the second one.

try ldapsearch -b "o=stixen.co.uk,c=uk" "(objectclass=*)" dn

this should give you _all_ DNs that are stored. (I don't know your ACLs, but default it's read by all)
