Recently installed latest Zimbra on CentOS5, but I cannoy get the GAL to work. I checked 'GAL configuration' in the admin console and galsync@mydomain.co.za is in there and it exists.

running:
[zimbra@mail root]$ ldapsearch -x ldap://mail.mydomain.co.za/ -b dc=mydomain,dc=co,dc=za -x -d-1
ldap_create
ldap_sasl_bind
ldap_send_initial_request
ldap_new_connection 1 1 0
ldap_int_open_connection
ldap_connect_to_host: TCP localhost:389
ldap_new_socket: 3
ldap_prepare_socket: 3
ldap_connect_to_host: Trying 127.0.0.1:389
ldap_pvt_connect: fd: 3 tm: -1 async: 0
ldap_close_socket: 3
ldap_err2string
ldap_sasl_bind(SIMPLE): Can't contact LDAP server (-1)
[zimbra@mail root]$

After reading many posts & wikis, I still do not know where to look.
running:

[zimbra@mail root]$ ldap status
slapd running pid: 2663

So I suppose slapd is running.


Any suggestions what I could check for?
Thanks in advance
