    Default RedHat EL4 fresh install

    OK Guys, here is the deal
    I have a fresh install of RedHat Enterprise Linux running on a Dell Poweredge 1850.
    I did a test install on CentOS 4.3 that went almost flawless, yet on RedHat I am struggling. I did some research and found that it seems to be LDAP that is failing. Using the info on the wiki I found how to start ldap manually with debug, below is the output.

    + sudo /opt/zimbra/openldap-2.3.21/libexec/slapd -d7 -l LOCAL0 -4 -u zimbra -h ldap:// -f /opt/zimbra/conf/slapd.conf
    @(#) $OpenLDAP: slapd 2.3.21 (Jul 12 2006 18:03:52) $
    daemon_init: ldap://
    daemon_init: listen on ldap://
    daemon_init: 1 listeners to open...
    daemon: bind(7) failed errno=99 (Cannot assign requested address)
    slap_open_listener: failed on ldap://
    slapd stopped.
    connections_destroy: nothing to destroy.
    + sleep 2
    + getpid
    + '[' -f /opt/zimbra/openldap/var/run/ ']'
    + '[' x = x ']'
    + echo 'ERROR - failed to start slapd'
    ERROR - failed to start slapd
    + echo ''

    + exit 1

    So, it tells me it cannot assign to the requested address ... I am confused.
    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    There are tons of posts on how to resolve dns and hostname problems but in summary it could be one of the following.

    - Check to make sure nothing is already bound to port 389.
    - /etc/hosts is setup correctly
    - Make sure resolves to an ip address that is assigned to one of the local interfaces.
