RE: Migrating from iPlanet to OpenLDAP

ldap_add: No such object has nothing to do with the schema.  The
message indicates that the parent entry of the one you're trying
to add doesn't exist in the directory.  What's the suffix of your
server?  I assume it's o=podunk.com (using your example).  Make
sure the o=podunk.com entry exists before trying to add anything
under it.
