RE: invalid credentials


Two questions:
Did you add the rootpw in your configuration file ?
Why do you add the entry "cn=manager,c=in" ?

You should add first the root entry, i.e. the one with the suffix "c=in",
but it seems strange to me that you will install a directory for the whole
domain "in", it would be normal to create a domain "o=myEnterprise, c=in"
or "dc=myEnterprise, dc=in"

In order to understand better what's going on launch the slapd daemon with
-d 10 , look at the output and launch in another window the command:

ldapmodify -D "cn=manager,c=in" -W

Be however sure to use the commands you installed. Sometimes the OS is
shipped with ldap, therefore it happens that you use a different ldap tool
you are thinking to use.

Hope this helps
