Your ldap instance isn't started, if it's correct, a service
dirsrv@[ldapinstance] start must do the trick (same command with status may
gives you a 'started' status).


In other cases try to reinstal/reconfigure it (sorry but I can't help, I'm
on Fedora with 389-ds).

Hi Manuel,

 'sudo service dirsrv@[yourldap] status' gives you no error?

Hello Community,


i installed Kolab on Debian 6.0 via kolab apt source.

When i run setup-kolab i got 


ldap.SERVER_DOWN: {'desc': "Can't contact LDAP server"}


after typing the Kolab Service password.

When i try to start dirsrv manually (/etc/init.d/dirsrv start) i got 


[ ok ] Starting 389 DS instance ritter-systems: ....


But nothing happens.




/usr/sbin/ns-slapd -D /etc/dirsrv/slapd-INSTANCENAME/


I got 


/usr/sbin/ns-slapd: relocation error:
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dirsrv/ symbol ldif_getline, version
OPENLDAP_2.4_2 not defined in file with link time


But could not find anything via google.


Any idea what to do?

If you are on a systemd system, you can just run as root systemctl and all
services will be listed, running or not.


You then can see the name of the service
