Re: Problem adding the ldif files. Password attr doesn't coincide.

what you see when you use slapcat is the binary (base64 encoded) version
of the userpassword attribute. the reason you cant see the userpassword
attribute when using the ldapsearch tool is probably because you have an
acl in your slapd.conf that restricts access to it. This is quite
normal. try using ldapsearch and binding as your rootdn ie:

ldapsearch -xWD <your rootdn here> uid=<foo>

check your slapd.conf for acl rules (access to....)
