That's bug <>, and I believe Kathryn will have it fixed in the next release. There's a workaround, and there is a patch (I think). Hopefully Kathryn will fill us in...

My problem is the following:

ldappc-1.0 always reports after a seemingly successfull OpenLDAP provisioning the following error:

A FATAL ERROR occurred when running Ldappc.
Check error log file, correct the problem, and resubmit.

Any ideas what may cause this?

The running environment is:

Grouper API/UI: 1.2.1
Signet: 1.2.2
Tomcat: 6.0.14
Sun Java: 1.5.0_14-b03
OS: RHEL4/AS (kernel2.6.9-67.0.4.ELsmp)
