I initially installed Messenger with no SSL but using port 636 (didn't
yet
have the SSL certificate information and forgot to change the port
back to
389) and using it's own user in eDir (gave rights according to the
Installation Guide but only to the container with the MessengerService

object). After installation had completed, I changed the switch back
to
port 389 (in the strtup.ma file) and started the agent. We used
Messenger
for about an hour at which point we wanted to add users in a different

context that the agent's eDir account couldn't see. So, I changed
access
to include the entire tree, changed the LDAP policy's Base DN to the organization searching the whole subtree, and restarted the agent. We

have not been able to use it since. The agent keeps starting up with
LDAP
validation failure: No LDAP default credentials and when [ENTER] is
pressed, it shuts down leaving the following at the console:

NMMA: Cleaning up...
NMMA: UIHandler thread shutdownby Messaging NMMA main
thread

NMMA: Unloading...

The only other thing I did was add a policy under the PolicyContainer
to
exclude specific users.

What can I do to get Messenger working again?

Thanks.
