When searching an address book on an active directory I get the error:

Cannot get contact list: LDAP error 0x1 (Operations error)

how can I get more detailed information?


The addressbook component of evolution has to be started in the debug mode. For this we will kill the whole evolution processes first:

In a terminal:

pkill evolution
export LDAP_DEBUG=1
/usr/lib/evolution/evolution-addressbook-factory -r

No evolution can be started as normal and in the first opened terminal we will see detailed information on the LDAP communication.
