Ole this is due unfortunately to the fact that the admin password must 
be set in two places. 

1. First while the server is up and running using the default password 
'secret' log into the server as admin and bind to ou=system. 
2. Set the userPassword attribute to a password in the entry 
3. Then shutdown the server. 
4. Then edit the server.xml file setting secret to your new password 
where ever you see it.
5. Start up the server.
6. Check that you can login as admin with the new password.

This is only this involved for the administrator.  Eventually this 
problem should go away.
