  • Since posting my first email I have re-generated both the root and Manager passwords and re-run the setup.

    I no longer get the “Invalid credentials” error so presumably the problem must have been a cut/paste issue.

    I now get the following error. As I am a total newbie to LDAP and don’t really know what’s going on, I don’t know what I need to do to fix it.

    [root@ollie2 ~]# ldapadd -x -D cn=Manager,dc=ringways,dc=com -W -f basedomain.ldif Enter LDAP Password:
    adding new entry “dc=ringways,dc=com”
    ldap_add: Naming violation (64)
    additional info: value of single-valued naming attribute ‘dc’
    conflicts with value present in entry
    [root@ollie2 ~]# cat basedomain.ldif
    # replace to your own domain name for “dc=***,dc=***” section

    dn: dc=ringways,dc=com objectClass: top objectClass: dcObject objectclass: organization o: Ringways dc: Server

    dn: cn=Manager,dc=server,dc=world objectClass: organizationalRole cn: Manager description: Directory Manager
