TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Newbie needs help with Turnkey openldap

Help! Just finished installing the Turnkey LDAP appliance. I access the LDAP login page via a web browser, but it won't let me log in. For testing, I kept the default example.com domain.

On the login page, for Login DN, I have cn=admin,dc=example,dc=com

For the password, I'm using the password I set up for admin during installation.

The error I keep getting is Invalid credentials (49) for user and Invalid Username or Password

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I know nothing about LDAP

BUt perhaps keeping the example.com domain is the problem? You could try with something like 'test.local' as you domain and see how that goes...

Good topic for a video!

I flunked sendmail class when my machine failed to forward to the next machine. The exercise was for the 1st student's machine to send an email to the next student and his machine would forward to the next, until it came back to the first student. I was the weak link and got tossed off the island!

So, this would be a GREAT topic for a video! 12 years later and I still don't know how I botched that exercise up, which was our final exam. :) Ric
