You need to install all the packages mentioned in your  post http:#a39838724
Have you done that?
Assuming you did, then on the Confirm Password prompt you should have typed YZHUyrUrxMn66Xd. (You should also have saved that string for future reference). Did you do that as well?

dirsrv is its default user name. You could try installing again using that instead of root, which it explicitly told you not to do. If dirsrv is not in your /etc/passwd, you could create it thus
# useradd -c dirsrv -d / -r -s /bin/false -U dirsrv

Open in new window

No one can log in as dirsrv so you don't really need a password. You can use passwd dirsrv as root to give it one if you like.

Have a look in /etc. Is there a dirsrv directory at all? With what contents, if so? Is there a cetmrap.conf somewhere else? (find /etc -name cetmrap.conf)
If you have followed the install instructions exactly and it has failed, then you have encountered a bug. You should report it to Ideally you would install on a clean system first (i.e. not a system already containing a failed install as you have now). Can you run up a VM and try that?

the dirsrv directory is created with it's contents during the aptitude install kolab part.
Did you have error messages there?

(error message may be in /var/log/setup.*.log
* = error or out
