When configuring the DSI proxy account I receive the following error:

Enter an admin name and password using dotted FDN or LDAP notation.
Admin name: cn=admin.o=services
Failed to reset proxy account. rc = '255'
Verify that the proxy account exists, and that the correct name and password of a valid admin was entered.

There is no mention made of any errors or problems in the documentation.

NDStrace on the eDir server does not see ANY (LDAP, NMAS, PKI) authentication event (Failed or succesful). All user names and passwords work fine with ndslogin, Novell Client, etc.

We also played around with ALL possible permutations of DN's for both the proxy account and the admin account.
