Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs

For the information in Ubuntu Documentation> Ubuntu 10.04> Ubuntu Server Guide> Network Authentication> OpenLDAP Server


I'd tried to setup a LDAP server using this guide.
I'd done all steps up to LDAP Replication and still fine. So, I'd skipped this section (Replication).
I'd tried to look down to Setting Up ACL.
I'd tried this step, but return:

                            'credentials (49)' errors.

What's problem?
I couldn't list the ACL status from LDAP DIT!!

Thanks for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better. The ACL section needs to be updated to
use the new:

  sudo ldapsearch -c -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -b cn=config

format. I'll try to get that updated.

Thanks Adam,

I've tried your solution.
                 sudo ldapsearch -c -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -b cn=config

However it may list (whole) DIT data.
It doesn't match to the server document.
Then, I tried a little modify with the original command:
                sudo ldapsearch -LLL -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -b cn=config olcDatabase=hdb olcAccess

It may show the correct (matched output) to the server document.
Thanks anyway.
