RE: Importing an LDIF file

Hadn't tried that, but doing so didn't provide any _obvious_ clues... The
only questionable part of the output was the last line below:
ber_flush: 41 bytes to sd 4
0 ' 02 01 01 ` " 02 01 02 04 1b c n = M
a n a g e r , d c = c o l u b s
, d c = c o m 80 00
ber_get_next: tag 0x30 len 12 contents:
ber_dump: buf 0x80574a0, ptr 0x80574a0, end 0x80574ac
current len 12, contents:
02 01 01 a 07 0a 01 00 04 00 04 00
request 1 done
parse_line missing value
It then kicks out the same "ldapadd: invalid format (line xx of entry:"
error that I've been fighting, followed by:
ber_flush: 7 bytes to sd 4
0 05 02 01 02 B 00
Is there anything there that helps at all?

Thanks for the reminder - basic troubleshooting technique, good to remember.
And once again, thanks for the answer!
