What sort of LDAP server are you using?

However, I'm no expert on LDAP, but I suspect the answer is in the logs
on the server - that will tell you why the writes aren't being accepted.
Basically you will need to make sure that the DN you authenticate with
has the requisite permissions to alter the tables on the server.
It is openldap 2.4 from OpenSuse. With jxplorer using the same 
credentials I can fully edit my ldap directory, with Evolution 3.6 too. 
It is not working with 3.10, the entry fields are greyed out. So I am 
sure that that is a configuration problem with evolution 3.10, maybe 
ldap editing is totally disabled. Editing Google Contacts works with 3.10.

The first thing is to start Evolution from the command line to see if
any errors are shown.  You should also, as I said, look in the server
logs to see if any problems are shown there.  The fact that the entry
fields are greyed out probably means that it doesn't have write
permission, not that it doesn't work at all.

There are also debug variables you can set that will monitor the LDAP
traffic ... BUT the page where they used to be documented:

linked from

Now just redirects to the Gnome wiki rather than going anywhere
sensible.  So, unfortunately I can't tell you what the correct variables
to use are.
