I got it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But as it was really hard to find out, I give out the solution to the
whole NewsGroup anyway so that people don't loose time as I did.
Very saddly, as I feared but I didn't believe it, LDAP server was simply
broken in RedHat 7.1 as TFTP server was in previous RedHat version
(7.0), which means the network service COULD NOT WORK whatever the config.
To fix the whole thing, I had to update RPM packages related to LDAP
server using "Roswell" beta 7.2 version. This allowed me immediately to
build an LDAP database with one Organization & some OrganizationalUnits
right away without changing anything, which definitely proves LDAP
server was broken in previous version. But I still couldn't add any
Person including an EMail property (without EMail it worked), so I had
to investigate and I discovered that for a person to have an EMail
property, it had to be a "inetOrgPerson", not a "Person", as an
objectClass. This is a feature of new "schema" system.
Now everything works, but it was hard to set :-( . I expect newest
RedHat 7.2 to fix other bugs, so I keep waiting anxiously.
Best regards all !
