RE: Adding Entries to a directory

you can use the ldapmodify/add/delete tools which require the input of an
ldif format file. Otherwise you can obtain a ldap client which will allow
you to add/modify/delete entries.

Subject: Adding Entries to a directory

Please forgive my ignorance. I'm just beginning to learn about LDAP. I am
using OpenLDAP 2.x
My question is: Do I have to create an ldif file with the different details
every time I want 
to add an entry to the db or is there another way of doing it?
For example, I have this one below:

dn: dc=Wananchi, dc=com
objectclass: dcObject
objectclass: organization
o: Wananchi Online
dc: Wananchi

dn: cn=wash, dc=Wananchi, dc=com
objectclass: organizationalRole
cn: wash

Suppose I want to add details for "user" with everything else remaining the
same, what would
be the format of my ldif??
