Hi all,
I am trying to access openLDAP server from a python script inside CMF site
of Zope.
I have python-ldap module installed on a linux machine.
My final intention is to Add an LDAP entry in to LDAP server.
Following code i have written in a python script  just to get started by
connecting to LDAP server and accessing the existing contents.
My approach to add an entry from python script is correct or its bound to

Script starts:

import ldap

ldapCon = ldap.open("localhost")


print ldapCon.search_s("ou=HR,o=Lambent",ldap.SCOPE_SUBTREE,"objectclass=*")

return printed

Script ends.

I am clueless as to what is causing this problem.

Following error i have encountered :
