thanks for the input guys.. I have to admit at this point, setting this up under FreeBSD was a breeze compared to what is going on now. I have made 3 attempts at this today.. twice on CentOS 5.4 and once on Ubuntu 10 Server. Given the differences in platform with identical outcomes I am thinking that it _has_ to be something with my slapd.conf file. I am still getting error 49s even if I use the actual word secret as the pass. Nov 2 19:02:00 ldap2 slapd: conn=0 fd=11 ACCEPT from IP=127.0.0.1:44448 (IP=0.0.0.0:389) Nov 2 19:02:00 ldap2 slapd: conn=0 op=0 BIND dn="cn=Manager,dc=acadaca,dc=net" method=128 Nov 2 19:02:00 ldap2 slapd: conn=0 op=0 RESULT tag=97 err=49 text= Nov 2 19:02:00 ldap2 slapd: conn=0 fd=11 closed (connection lost) And this is how my ldap.conf is setup BASE dc=acadaca,dc=net HOST localhost I would appreciate it greatly if someone could please give it a look.
