Right. And when I try to run setup-ds-admin.pl -u I'm asked about misc.
information that I don't have readily available, but most of it is
auto-filled in, and I guess it stored in some configuration file from
the previous time the admin-server was set up? 

Seems like no matter what I enter it returns "Error:  No such object" or
"Error: Invalid credentials". At least the last one I suppose means it
managed to connect to the LDAP server, but got the wrong admin password
or something? If it is the wrong password, how can I reset it?
