Unable to use password during OpenLDAP setup

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello All! I'm busy trying to set up an OpenLDAP (on CentOS6) configuration that has run into a snag, hope some of my fellow big brains can help me out! I followed a howto setup on server-world, but when I try and use ldapadd on frontend.ldif I get the following error: [root@sdserver ~]# ldapadd -x -D cn=admin,dc=server,dc=world -W -f frontend.ldif Enter LDAP Password: ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49) The credentials are most certainly not incorrect! The setup is on CentOS6, sdserver.sddomain.local. Here is my exact setup: [root@dir ~]#yum -y install openldap-servers openldap-clien (HowTos)
