address book getting "LDAP Protocol Error"
I just got a 2.1.22 server working in an remote location. From this
desktop (Linux), I can successfully execute ldapsearch for my account
against it. When I add it as a directory server to Thunderbird and
search for my account, it comes back silently with no results. When
Outlook users on our network attempt to sync Outlook's copy of the
address book against this server, they get a popup reading "LDAP
Protocol Error" and labeled "Messageware Address Book".
What's the difference between Thunderbird's request for my account and
ldapsearch's request for my account? I even changed my /etc/ldap.conf
to point to that box instead of our usual directory, restarted nscd, and
ran 'id jbeamon' successfully. It's not confined to just ldapsearch or
just pam_ldap. It almost appears to be an email client issue, and I'm

P.S. This is the same server that had a 2.0.27 to 2.1.22 migration
thread the last couple days. I literally ran one more 'rm * ; slapadd
-l LDIF ; chown ldap:ldap *; service ldap restart', just like the dozen
before it, and it 'worked'. I don't have any conclusive answer to my
original migration issues, but it's up and running.
