I also suspect that there may not be a valid password set on the

Since it's starting on ldapi:/// he should just do a SASL EXTERNAL
bind on ldapi:// using Unix root. Pretty sure Debian packages it
with the appropriate authz-regexp already configured.

I don't have a Debian Squeeze server at present so I cannot
check that.

Where is this documented? I am having great trouble finding
any clear description of how to actually access cn=config in
the bootstrap case.

I don't know where Debian documents their bootstrap config, you'll have to ask them.

Similarly I cannot find anything that
clearly describes the use of SASL EXTERNAL with ldapi.


If you can point me at some authoritative statements I will
propose a patch for the Admin Guide.
