You have to bind as cn=config and provide the correct password.

ldapsearch -x -D "cn=config" -b "cn=config" -s sub -W

That is not necessarily correct. You can read the cn=config database with any user that has privileges to read in it (See global ACL's). You could theoretically even give anonymous read to the cn=config database.

than ever in the present religio-political climate. They often focus on
fantasy and sf books, which foster that deadly enemy to bigotry and blind
faith, the imagination." -- Ursula K. Le Guin
