Yes, everything is auto-filled in, except that when using just the
auto-filled in information I get the error "Invalid credentials". So I
suspected that I had somehow gotten the password wrong, and tried
resetting it, but this didn't help.

Using the console isn't possible as the console doesn't start, as stated
in my first message in this thread. That is, I can't login with the
console at least, it fails with 
"netscape.ldap.LDAPException: error result (32); No such object". 

I use the same username and password for the console that I've always
used, and this is the same as what I enter when running
setup-ds-admin.pl, which is rejected with "Error: Invalid credentials". 

I have also tried resetting this password following the howto at
http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Howto:ResetDirMgrPassword, but
this didn't help either.
