	I have set up an OpenLDAP 2.1 server, and have successfully used

directory software (such as OS/X Address Book) to recognize it. I found
some pages on the Internet which say that an LDAP entry must of the the
type inetOrgUser, and have the basic fields filled in (cn,sn,givenname,
etc.) I have done all this, and yet when I try to search our directory,
Address Book returns nothing, even though it works fine with another
on-campus directory (so I know Address Book itself is working
correctly). Any ideas what I am doing wrong? here's the relevant sample

I suggest you run slapd with debugging levels turned up, so you can see what the client is doing when it queries your server. Every address book software I've seen looks at different things in different ways, generally meaning that you have to give it some knowledge of how your server is set up (like the base DN to use, etc).
