[Bug 333733] Re: OpenLDAP credentials issue


This issue still exists in Ubuntu 16.04 and I don't think it's just a
documentation problem.

In order to add a new schema (dn: cn=myNewSchema,cn=schema,cn=config) through an ldif file, I had to follow this:

In fact, the LDAP admin user (Manager) is not allowed to add new
schemas: the returned error is:

ldap_add: Insufficient access (50)

So, I think the Ubuntu configuration scripts are still missing some
steps when configuring the OpenLDAP server package.

Should I open a new bug?

  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.
