Is telephone number an attribute in your export-mapping?

That's correct, if this was not the case you would loose changes by overwriting the previous file

Bootstrapping updates the last change number AND is a way to test your profile: if you don't get output, there must be something wrong with your profiles.

Instance is not important. You can run several instances of one server (OIDLDAPD, ODISRV) and they must have different instance numbers per server (so instance=1 is allowed on ldapd and odisrv at the same time). Config is important. Profiles you create run in a certain configset in OID. You can check in your OID manager what the config number is. For these profiles, normally it would be 1.

Because you MAY already have an instance=1, running with configset 0 (a hidden, default configset, used e.g. for portal account caching) If not use instance=1.

And they show the cause! Your server is running at port 389, not 3060.. So leave out the port parameter.

For clarity: could you also show the 'execution' tab?

That is a sign it's not working, you should at least get trace files there. (.TRC)
