I just installed a SUN Directory server 5.2 in Windows server 2003, and tried to access the LDAP directory from my Outlook 2003 client, but got an error saying - "Invalid DN Syntax (34)".

Any help is highly appreciated!!

usually the the Bind DN on the SUN directory server will be
cn=Directory Manager

the password will be the one that you assigned when you created the account.

If you installed the admin console then you should be able to start it and verify this information.
