Hi Folks!

I'm newbie to LDAP and I received a mission to update the version.

Today is running Openldap 2.2.23 and I need to update to OpenLDAP 2.4.28.

See chapters 10, 19, and appendix B of the OpenLDAP Administrator's Guide,

Hi Dan,

I tried both settings.

This is the error message:

This error means that you have a value within your input, for an

newer version of slapd that you are using.

Try to found out which entry in your input is causing the error.
