I not sure about the errors you're getting but I thought this may be of
interest to you..

I had made a couple different object classes for people, and also used
from the slapd.oc.conf file and noticed the Address Book in Netscape
Communicator used this match up:

- For Netscape Address book:
  LDAP in conf file   Netscape Header
  ----------------   ----------------
   cn                 Name
   l                  City
   mail               Email
   nickname           Nickname
   telephonenumber    Phone Number
   o                  Organization

The organization seemed to be taken from the DN, which I had a DN that
had a
cn, o, and c in it.

The when I double-clicked a record it opened a Navigator window with the
values of the other fields for that person.

I hope I used the terminology correctly, I'm new to LDAP too. Hope this
