LDAP and slapd Version

Category : Technology/LDAPErrorOnMavericks.txt

I’m still trying to figure out why LDAP authentication for Dovecot and Postfix will work on Mountain Lion but not on Mavericks. 


I’m baffled because the slapd server’s version is the same on both systems - version 2.4.28. So I’m going through every single configuration parameter - on LDAP, Dovecot and Postfix, and the configuration directories they use on the system, like /usr/lib/pam and /etc/pam.d.

I keep getting this error - "pam_ldap: error trying to bind as user (Insufficient access)”. Lots of leads on Google but no real breakthrough.

I’m hoping to find a solution and get this out of the way, so I can work on two things next - IPv6 support for DNS Enabler and a VPN Server Enabler - things I should have started work on for a long time already.
