All is well, i think, but here my data:
suffix          "dc=telbit,dc=pt"
rootdn          "cn=admin,dc=telbit,dc=pt"
rootpw		secret

I have in ejabberd config file:
{auth_method, ldap}.
{ldap_servers, ["mail.telbit.pt"]}.    % List of LDAP servers
{ldap_uidattr, "mgamito"}.            % LDAP attribute that holds user ID
{ldap_base, "ou=users,dc=telbit,dc=pt"}. % Search base of LDAP directory
{ldap_rootdn, "cn=admin,dc=telbit,dc=pt"}. % LDAP manager
{ldap_password, "n3xus6"}. % Password to LDAP manager
{ldap_filter, "(objectClass=inetOrgPerson)"}.
{ldap_uidattr_format, "%u at mail.telbit.pt" }.

Yes, but which of it ?
core.schema ?

I am the LDAP administrator.

There are many...

You mean I have to have one uid line per person ?
What is the password field in the schema that ejabberd uses ?

Warm Regards,
