This is the right list.

This is commonly caused by not specifying a search base (-b)
on your ldapsearch command.   See our FAQ for hints.

That's a good sign.  However, I recommend using ldapadd() to import
entries into your directory.  ldif2ldbm doesn't do any ldif or
schema checks (it's designed to work in conjunction with ldbmcat).

Probably a case of bad ldif.  Use ldapadd.
