I'm wondering if the rootdn in the sample slapd.conf is a sensible one:
rootdn "dc=example, dc=com"
is the same as the base of the LDAP tree - basically, this is NOT a distinguished name, I'd think.

    The rootdn is used only to authenticate the LDAP administrator. You can use "cn=Manager, dc=example, dc=com" but using "dc=example, dc=com" is equally correct and requires less typing.
