Re: SASL error
Sean, thank you for your help. I didn't expect to hear from someone on
the weekend. I appreciate this.
I tried it and it worked. Basically I was authenticated and I didn't
know I am. I was expecting some sort of message to tell me that it
Thank you again.

Any idea ?
Without -x ldapmodify and ldapsearch attempt to use SASL
authentication. If you haven't set your server up to support SASL
authentication it will fail with the above message.
With -x it is using password authentication, and by the sound of it it
is succeeding. After you authenticate it is waiting for changes in
ldif format, you just need to type them in. You might prefer to use
the -f command line option and provide the ldif as a file. The man
page for ldapmodify has an example.
I often use ldapmodify -n -v to do a dry run first. This verifies
that the changes that I'm asking for are the changes that I want.
So all together that would be (if file.ldif contains the changes):
Dry run: ldapmodify -W -D "cn=Manager,dc=test,dc=com" -h localhost -n
-v -f file.ldif
Actual change: ldapmodify -W -D "cn=Manager,dc=test,dc=com" -h
localhost -v -f file.ldif
