Use ldapsearch.exe or another tool to check if you can actually bind outside of IBM Installation Manager.
Do you have any illegal characters in the bind password such as $ or !?
You may need to dig around the log files in IBMIM in the ant or native directories to see if there are any further errors. I have seen it many times when using passwords with illegal characters, not always with Sametime but other IBM software and the way to circumnavigate it is to use a response file.
You could use a response file and ensure that the bind password is inputted correctly. If you encrypt/encode the password then it removes the illegal characters. I have used this approach before when customers have provided passwords with illegal characters.
