My ldapadd of your examples indicated success. But this is the result ldapsearch:


version: 2


#
# filter: (objectclass=*)
# requesting: ALL
#


# search result
search: 2
result: 0 Success


# numResponses: 1


And I was able to add the directory in Netscape Address Book, but it says there are zero cards and the search for "Jane" fails. I tried ldpadd again and it says the record already exists. So, it exists, but nothing can find it?

    Try posting the complete ldapadd (include all arguments) and ldapsearch (include all arguments).

      Sorry to respond so late. No time during the week. The ldapadd command was as you have it in your article, except that I added the "-x" option. Without that, I get this error:

      ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: No such attribute

      The same goes for the search. I have to use this string to search:

      ldapsearch -x -b 'dc=example, dc=com' 'objectclass=*'

      And the output is as I posted before. Here it is again:

      version: 2

      #
      # filter: objectclass=*
      # requesting: ALL
      #

      # search result
      search: 2
      result: 0 Success

      # numResponses: 1

        Hi jcphil,

        I had the same problem last weekend. Now after going through the slapd.conf, I found that it was the access control creating the problem. Since there was nothing mentioned in the article about "access to" in slapd.conf, I commented it out, restarted slapd and everything working fine. Need to read more details about access to..... Have fun.
