Did you create "dc=mdah,dc=state,dc=ms,dc=us" ?

And as a side note, "ou" stands for Organizational Unit.  Most places
do not consider "people" one of their organizational unites, and I
doubt yours does either. ;)  I would suggest using "cn".

You may want to look at:


specifically the



in slapd.conf I have:

database        bdb
suffix          "dc=mdah,dc=state,dc=ms,dc=us"
rootdn          "cn=adam,dc=mdah,dc=state,dc=ms,dc=us"

Thats where I create "dc=mdah,dc=state,dc=ms,dc=us"", right?  Or do I
need to do something to create it somewhere else?

Yes, you must create it in your LDAP database, too, with LDIF. See the URL's above.
