I have the following in my OpenLDAP configuration. Using the latest version OpenLDAP on Centos 5.3. Installed using
database bdb suffix "dc=company,dc=com" rootdn "cn=Manager,dc=company,dc=com"
I have successfully added an entry with
ldapadd and retrieved it with
ldapsearch from a local bash shell on the box.
Now I am trying to get a Graphical Editor to connect to this server remotely so I can enter people from my laptop. But I am having no luck. I tried JXplorer, and it connects with
Anonymous bind without me having to specify a
BaseDN but I can't edit anything that way.
If I try and give it a user name and password, using
Manager and my
rootpw I have in clear text just for testing, every GUI Client on my remote laptop complains about my
BaseDN not being the correct format when I enter
dc=company,dc=com and I tried
Error opening connection: [LDAP: error code 34 - invalid DN]
I have tried multiple clients and all of them connect as anonymous, none let me connect authenticated where I can actually create or edit anything.
I am using
Manager as my username and the password from
rootpw, is that correct?
