Dang! This is easperating...

I'm very annoyed by the lack of relevant information on how to
properly construct the ldif. What I mean is an overview of how
to deal with the problems I've been having.

However, I do thank the guys who helped me this week. I got much
farther than I thought I'd be able.

Now I'm trying to add entries and I still have problems.
The root is built properly and the Admin ou is added. Now
I have this issue:


[1994] cat ken.ldif
dn: cn=Ken, dc=sdl, dc=org
objectclass: person
cn: Ken
sn: Ingram
-- root@gemini [/usr/local/etc/openldap/ldifs] bash --
[1995] ldapadd -x -D "cn=root, ou=Admin, dc=sdl, dc=org" -f ken.ldif -w
adding new entry "cn=Ken, dc=sdl, dc=org"
ldap_add: Invalid syntax
        additional info: value contains invalid data

ldif_record() = 21

The error message isn't helpful in the least, and there is a circular path
in the way the FAQ lays out the data.

What's wrong with this picture? Isn't there some succint, simple,
uncomplicated source for conquering these problems besides bothering the
list with these mundane questions?

The bloody thing is displayed as being simple to use, but it's far from
simple so far.

Anyway, thanks for the help folks.
