[Bug 333733] Re: OpenLDAP credentials issue


The guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/openldap-
server.html still leaves you with a non-functional ldap server when
following it.

I applied the step in comment #5 but importing the example ldif gives
"ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)"

  OpenLDAP credentials issue

Status in Ubuntu Documentation:
Status in “ubuntu-docs” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:

  At the "Populating LDAP" stage I was getting 'credentials (49)'

  All previous activities seemed to work just fine, but not that.

  I eventually found that it worked if I first did:
          sudo su openldap

  I'm not sure whether I just found a way around another problem, or
  whether this was an expected action before ldap administration.

  It took me a while to find that because until then all seemed fine. It
  asked for passwords as expected, ans seemed to do actions as expected.
