Good morning/evening All,

So, another strange thing I see with 4.1.2 running on FC21 (server). On some replicas if I attempt to modify the 389-ds backend, I get credential errors. Even ldapsearch fails - which as me baffled. I am trying to tune the servers but this has me confused as to what might cause something like this and where to start looking for a solution?

Here is the interesting part - when the server was intially replicated, I was able to make changes to 389-ds, but after a few days, credentials now show errors:

ldapsearch -x -LLL -D "cn=directory manager" -b "cn=monitor" "(objectclass=*)" -W
Enter LDAP Password:
ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)

This doesn't make any sense. Directory manager passwords are not replicated, they are local to each machine. Directory manager passwords do not expire, and the error message is definitely "incorrect password" not "password expired". There are no internal processes that touch directory manager or its password (unless there is something in ipa but I doubt it). So I have no idea how "all of a sudden" directory manager password stops working.

You can't recover it, you can only reset it.
