Actually, the LDAP admin password is the same as the original root
password.  It is the one you are expected to type in to run

Given that the initial user do not have full LDAP admin access, I doubt
this could have worked.

This will only work after a reboot.  I hope you rebooted after running

Perhaps subnet-change should do the reboot or at least ask the user if
the reboot should be done right away?
