Re: Is there a simple document that explains the various admin passwords?

Are you sure you don't have psychic powers? :)

I guess my question could be interpreted that way....

However, I'm interested in how the various passwords are setup.

Ever since OpenLDAP went to the .ldif format with cn=config, I'm always kind of looking at this issue that there's the process password and the database password.

I'd like have a simple reference guide as to how to set each with with an editor (bad) or with ldapmodify (good).

An example of each one would be good.  More often than I care to admit, I'm getting "Invalid Credentials" and realize I'm using the wrong password.

It then makes me want to set any and all passwords to the same value (bad).



PS - I'm CC'ing you this with my telepathy... :)

DNs and Passwords are whatever you configured them to be.  We can not
psychically intuit your configuration.  I.e., there is no set of default
DNs or passwords in play, they depend entirely on your specific
configuration.  In this specific case, you're attempting to bind with a DN
of "cn=config" and some password.  We have no way of knowing if this is
valid in your setup.
