How will OpenLDAP help writing a thesis ?! ... never mind...

You may like to post the ldif file you are trying to add and your
slapd.conf file... Essentially if you are trying to add

dn: ou=foo,dc=bar,dc=com

you need to have a 

dn: dc=bar,dc=com 

somewhere (and probably set as the suffix in ths slapd.conf). you need
to add something like

dn: dc=bar,dc=com
objectclass: dcObject
objectclass: organisation
o: Test organisation

The Quick start guide on openldap.org descripes this quite well.
