that's not an ldif record, it's an attributetype specification. these
usually reside in schema files in your /etc/openldap/schema directory,
e.g. the core.schema. if included in your slapd.conf, these schema
definitions are loaded on startup. you cannot add them with ldapadd.
an ldif record looks as follows:
dn: cn=Barbara J Jensen,dc=example,dc=com
cn: Barbara J Jensen
cn: Babs Jensen
have a look on the openldap administrators guide for detailed
