Trying to installed OES (boxed CD's) in a test tree for training. During
the install with attempting to initialize edirectory it errors the failed
to bind edirectory to ldap. I'm new to Linux and can't seem to find a
corrective action.

New installation, new tree. The message appears while initializing
edirectory for the first time. I had the installation finish and tried
configuring edirectory, post installation with the same results.
