SUMMARY: Newbie: Attributes

The answer was that I didn't have the attribute in a MUST/MAY list. Once I put it in I was able to add the attribute.

Original Question:
>I am new to ldap and I didn't set up this server. I need to add some attributes to >classify users, such as faculty, students, staff etc. I understand that an >attribute is supposed to exist in one of the schema files included in the >slapd.conf file and userClass exists in cosine.schema. I set up a file like the >following.
>File to make changes contains:
>dn: cn=pdc, dc=simpson, dc=edu
> changetype: modify
> add: userClass
> userClass: staff
>I use the command ldapmodify -a -f ./entrymods
>and I get the error:
>ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: No such attribute
>I have spent 2 days looking at this and have read everything I can find as well >as searched archives looking for the answer. It doesn't seem that it should be >that difficult but I am stumped. Any help would be appreciated.
