ldapsearch query via OpenLDAP proxy to AD

I am trying to query the active directory ( on my network using ldapsearch by way of an OpenLDAP proxy ( using the following slapd.conf:

*************slapd.conf on******************
database        meta
suffix          "dc=corp,dc=mycompany,dc=com"
dncache-ttl     forever
lastmod         off
rootdn         "cn=Administrator,cn=users,dc=corp,dc=mycompany,dc=com"
rootpw          12345678
uri             "ldap://,dc=corp,dc=mycompany,dc=com";
pseudorootdn    "cn=admin2,cn=users,dc=corp,dc=mycompany,dc=com"
pseudorootpw    12345678

When I try this it works (returns results from the AD):
ldapsearch -h -x -D cn=administrator,cn=users,dc=corp,dc=mycompany,dc=com -W -b 'dc=corp,dc=mycompany,dc=com' ''cn=tim*'

When I try this it doesn't return any results at all:
ldapsearch -h -x -b 'dc=corp,dc=mycompany,dc=com' 'cn=tim*'

What should I change in my slapd.conf to make the second query return results? 

In other words, how do I successfully get the  back-meta to authenticate properly to the AD? 

I have been told (if I understood correctly) that the back-meta with the pseduorootdn parameter will allow this type of proxied authenticated query to work.
