RE: Problem changing passwords after import

The directory is the only place that there is user information.  I took
all the entries out of the old password file and the only thing that is
in there are the local accounts.  So if it is not getting its
credentials from the directory I don't know where it would be getting it
from.  Also when I stop the server I am unable to check mail or ftp to
our servers.

How can you tell the other services bind to OpenLDAP if even ldapwhoami
can't?  I guess binding to OpenLDAP fails, and services fall back to
file based data.  Please carefully check the logs of your server before
proceeding any further.  It seems clear, from the little info you
posted, that basic authentication (LDAP simple bind) is not working with
the credentials you stored in your directory.
