Re: ldif2ldbm

Okay... Thanks for all your help :) Things are slowing beginning to work.

I copied the test stuff out into another directory and linked it into a
running config.  I queried the LDAP server and got results! hooray!  I
looked more closely at the syntax and managed to get my ldif to work.
using ldif2ldbm.

However.. ldapadd.  I enter the following:
[root@blahblah openldap]# ldapadd
dn: cn=Test Me, o=fish, c=US
cn: Test Me
sn: Me
email: testme@testme.com
objectclass: person

and I get...

adding new entry cn=Test Me, o=fish, c=US
ldap_add: Object class violation

I opened up slapd.oc.conf which seems to have a huge list of object
definitions in it thinking that I may have missed something to have a
valid person entry (thus the eror Object class violation) but I am
definining objectclass, and cn.

Anyone any ideas?
