Upgrade from GW2012 to GW2014 went smoothly... so I thought !

I have an "1001 GWAdmin Directory configuration could not be completed during install. It is required for MTA sync"

Note this was GW2012 running on Linux for the 2-3 years (originally from GW8 on Netware)

No problems. I did verify db etc before upgrade

LDAP Test connection said "Sucessful" but Directory association fails!
users are not associated.
