You must look in the servers logs to determine which attribute
is undefined.  Note that OpenLDAP 1.x never returns undefined
attribute type (resultCode 0x11)... it implicitly treats all
names it doesn't recognize as 'cis'.

You are likely using a server which requires attributes to be
defined.  Define them.
