RE: ldapsearch error

Root always takes on "cn=Manager" privilege and uses the password in
/etc/ldap.secret to authenticate.

Normal user binds as the "-D binddn" name in command line and if "-D" is
not defined, "anonymous".

No such object I guess due to ACL's permssion set in server slapd.conf.

Anyone pls correct me if I am incorrect.

Subject: ldapsearch error

I have installed LDAP 2.1.25 on Mandrake 10.0

A simple query for a uid performed by root functions properly:

[root@web1 ldap]# /usr/bin/ldapsearch -x -LLL "(uid=rfritz)"
dn: uid=rfritz,ou=users,dc=example,dc=net
uid: rfritz

HOWEVER, I cannot perform this same query by a non-root user:

[aewhale@web1 aewhale]$ /usr/bin/ldapsearch -x -LLL "(uid=rfritz)" No
such object (32)

Why?  Any clues?
