run an import as an anonymous bind.

  I'll try again with a bind dn and see what hapens.

Yes, any binddn should work. We intended this as a password migration mechanism which is why we bind as the root user by default but it can also just migrate your users I suppose. I briefly looked at the code and we aren't explicitly requiring userPassword so I'm thinking it may just work if you can bind.

Note that KioqKioqKio= is '********'. Someone has a sense of humor at Apple :-)

If so I guess that would explain it.

Yes, "cn=Directory Manager" against Apple DS. Anonymous bind wouldn't work,
because during migration, you need to read LDAP attributes that store user
passwords. Those are usually not readable anonymously.
