Trouble connecting to two different LDAP partions on local server

Jul 13, 2012 at 3:38 AM

I created a new LDAP partiton with no issue but am having trouble connecting to it in ADSI Edit. I have reviewed http://community.bartdesmet.net/blogs/bart/archive/2010/07/12/getting-started-with-active-directory-lightweight-directory-services.aspx, traced my steps, and (of course) googled the error message I keep getting. I'll keep looking but thought I'd post this if not at least for the copy-paste accessibility later on.

Operation failed. Error code: 0x202b
A referral was returned from the server.

0000202B: RefErr: DSID-031007EF, data 0, 1 access points
                ref 1: 'northwind.local'

A referral was returned from the server.

Now what is wrong receiving a referral from the server? Hopefully I will be able to answer that soon.

I figured it out! I needed to specify the port number in ADSI Edit because I can't connect to separate partition in the same machine without specifying the LDAP port number!

This is how I feel:
