ldap proxy to AD returns no results

I am trying to use OpenLDAP v2.1.29 on a linux server ( as a proxy into an Active Directory server (

Using ldapsearch on the linux box, I can query the AD directly with the following command:

ldapsearch -H ldap:// -x -D tim.lank@testcompany.com -W -b 'cn=users,dc=corp,dc=testcompany,dc=com' 'cn=Lank*'

when I enter my AD password, the above returns all of the AD attributes & values for the query.

However, when I try to query the AD via the proxy with the following command, it returns nothing at all:

ldapsearch -H ldap:// -x -b 'cn=users,dc=corp,dc=testcompany,dc=com' 'cn=Lank*'

The slapd was compiled with the following:

./configure --enable-ldap --enable-rewrite

And the following is the contents of the database section for the ldap backend:

#### section in slapd.conf  ###############
database        ldap
suffix          cn=users,dc=corp,dc=testcompany,dc=com
uri             ldap://corp.testcompany.com
binddn          tim.lank@testcompany.com
bindpw          mypassword

Any thoughts?
