I've tried to install iAS6.0SP3 on my solaris. However, I received this message during the installation.
[slapd-sitserver]: [18/Mar/2002:15:13:27 +0800] - slapd started.
Your new directory server has been started.
Created new Directory Server
Start Slapd Starting Slapd server configuration.
ERROR: Ldap authentication failed for url ldap://sitserver.sitsvr:389/o=NetscapeRoot user id admin (151:Unknown error.)
Fatal Slapd Did not add Directory Server information to Configuration Server.
Warning Slapd Could not populate with ldif file Yes error code 151
ERROR. Failure installing iPlanet Directory Server. Do you want to continue [n]?
Someone has ask this before but the solution didnt help.
Does the message means directory service was install correctly?
I've the hostname and domainname configured for the system. hostname-"sitserver" domainname-"sitsvr". It shouldnt be the problem here.
I used Root account for login and use 389 for idap port. I did everything but the result was the same.
Please help. Thank you.
A problem that I have faced many times. Check the entries in the /etc/hosts file and check it against the domainname value at the command prompt, if both of them mismatch the installation would stop abruptly.
Next, check if you are able to ping the Solaris box from the neighbouring machine by using ping utility. The ping that you are giving must be something like, ping hostname.domainname(eg: ping mysys.domain1.domain2.com).
The reason why this occurs is, iAS automatically picks up the one that is set by default while accepting inputs. But at the later stage, this is automatically picked up and is not the one given as input. Please let me know if this helps, for me to investigate further on this.
