Do you try a simple,

java -jar apacheds-main-0.9.1.jar

or do you have a special configuration ("")?
In the default configuration (the call above works for me in 0.9.1) Port 389 is used. Do you run another LDAP server on your system?

Please respond to "Apache Directory Developers List"

        Subject:        Unable to start ADS 0.9.1



Probably I do something wrong but I can't start the server... I keeps
throwing exceptions and says "Only 'uid=admin,ou=system' can initiate the
first run." upon server start start and "Address already in use: bind" every
time I try binding to the server.

I have JDK 1.5.0_03-b7 under Windows XP SP2. Apache DS 0.9.1.

Could you please suggest something?


Sincerely yours,
