OK, I have a pretty simple tree, moving the duties of one nw6.5 server to an OES2Linux server. LDAP is not installed. I remember having issues when I first set up the server, and they appear to still be there.
When choosing to install LDAP, there is a list of conflicts a mile long, which ultimately come down to Edir must be uninstalled on this server in order to install LDAP. By my understanding, this makes a full function OES2 file server impossible, since AFP and CIFS use LDAP to get authentication to eDir.

Our Mac users are unable to connect to this machine, getting invalid username/password, whether they connect via CIFS or AFP.

What is my next step?
