Re: unable to perform authenticated binds

Ya know, that leading space thing confused the heck out of me when I started writing a slapf.conf from scratch.  I'm guessing were ya'll to know at that start of spec'ing slapd.conf the methods that are now common to multi-line or 'containerize' options, something different, more readable, and less error (yes, user error) prone would have been selected.

Really, white space shouldn't kill a config.

Hindsight, eh?

Utter nonsense.

You missed the more obvious problem.

The rootpw line has a leading space.
