I tried removing and extending the schema but I'm not able to do that
successfully (grr). I tried removing the schema with the SSL parameter
but I get an ldap_modify failed (Object Class violation) error. When I
try it with Cleartext I get ldap_simple_bind failed. I even checked the
Allow Cleartext for the LDAP Group - Servername in ConsoleOne and tried
executing the command again but it failed. I'm using the admin account
to do these operations.

Also checked out the troubleshooting document
page=/documentation/nbm38/troubleshooting/data/chdjbige.html) but
refreshing NLDAP it didn't help.

Any ideas?
