  You didn't follow instruction and get a "known good" password into LDAP.

  Yes.  You ask a question from the experts.  They give you an answer.
Then you argue with the answer.

 "Well, if what you say is true, they why do I see this OTHER message?"

  It's rude.

  Yes.  There is a consistent pattern of people asking questions and
arguing with the answers.  It's rude, and we don't put up with it.

  Fix the underlying issue and it will work.  Argue, and you'll never

  Which one do you want?  It's up to you.
