On my RHEL 4 system I have the following rpms installed:


I'm using the openldap-server and trying to log in using the openldap-client.

"The FAQ states that openldap and clients have to be build with the
same crypt library. On my system (SuSE Linux-9.3) perl has been build
with libcrypt, while openldap has been build with libcrypto. Please
check your system and refrain from using cryt password hashes if

I'm not sure what the above means, or rather, what I need to do.

I tried using different schemes for the userPassword:

[root@db workarea]# slappasswd -h {SHA}
New password:
Re-enter new password:


[root@db workarea]# slappasswd -h {MD5}
New password:
Re-enter new password:

I ran ldapmodify for user for each password.  I ran ldapsearch as the user: 

ldapsearch -v -H "ldap://example.com" -D 'cn=Ron,ou=Zimbra,dc=example,dc=com' -W -x -b 'ou=Zimbra,dc=example,dc=com'

Each time I enter password, login fails with "Invalid Credentials (49)".

Is there some configuration change I need to make to openldap itself?
