Autofs & LDAP

On Redhat 7.3 with openldap-servers-2.0.27-2.7.3, and autofs-3.1.7-28. I have a
working autofs/ldap configuration.

dn: ou=auto.master,dc=il,dc=com
ou: auto.master
objectClass: top
objectClass: automountMap

dn: cn=/opt,ou=auto.master,dc=il,dc=com
objectClass: automount
cn: /opt

dn: cn=bin,ou=auto.opt,dc=il,dc=com
objectClass: automount
cn: bin
automountInformation: -ro

The same maps on Fedora core 1 with openldap-servers-2.1.22-8, and
autofs-3.1.7-42 refuse to work.

This is what I see in the logs:
automount[13734]: starting automounter version 3.1.7, path = /cm, maptype =
ldap, mapname =,dc=il,dc=com
automount[1988]: lookup(ldap): couldn't connect to

if I put a space between the : after the ldap hostname and the dn auto fs
reconizes the automount but then fails on the lookup.
automount[8400]: lookup(ldap): query failed for (&(objectclass=automount)(cn=opt))

a ldapsearch -x "(&(objectclass=automount)(cn=opt))" returns the proper map.

Any suggestions??
In slapd.conf I have "allow bind_v2"
