Re: Problem with ldapadd - parent does not exist

Hi Markus,

Think of a real tree: you can only add a leaf to a tree if you have all 
parts - from root over all branches to the leaf.

That means (for example):

add the root: (your suffix)

dn: c=de
objectclass: country
c: de

add branch(es)
dn: o=mycompany,c=de
objectclass: organization
o: mycompany

dn: ou=suborg,o=myorganization,c=de
objectclass: organizationalunit
ou: suborg

...other ou'...

add leaf
dn: cn=myname,ou=(...),c=de
obejctclass: organizationperson
cn: DasBinIch

this is also described in the admin-guide (quick start guide).

Kind regards,

        Subject:        Problem with ldapadd - parent does not exist


I've tried to add entries to the OpenLDAP-Server but I only get the
error-message behind.

pingu:/etc/init.d# ldapadd -x -D "cn=admin,dc=pingu,dc=de" -W -f
Enter LDAP Password:
adding new entry "cn=Markus Jung,dc=pingu,dc=de"
ldap_add: No such object
        additional info: parent does not exist

What means this to me???
What do I have to do to make my ldapadd work??

Tank you,
