This error really seems strange. It might be cause by the fact that you
tried to bind with a non-existant DN in the first place. Does it still
happen, when you bind with the correct root-DN?

In your case, I think that one of the things I posted some days ago
applies: You have to create the directory-root object itself. Your suffix
is "o=Whitesmiths,c=AU", so you have to create that organization object,
like this:

dn: o=Whitesmiths,c=AU
objectclass: organization
objectclass: top
o: Whitesmiths

("oc: top" is not really necessary, but nice to have).

After that, you should be able to create objects below the directory-root.

I already reported this behaviour, which I consider unintuitive, but got
no answer.

Hope that solves your problem!
