Re: NEWBIE question: ldap_add: Undefined attribute type

Check if there is any trailing space after the attribute 'fonManagerDN' in your LDIF file.

Hello all,

I'm new to LDAP and have fun trying to get it installed and configured. I 've 
been looking through the archives and have found answers to most of my 
questions there, but have finally hit a wall.

I'm trying to import a ldif file that I've received from a netscape directory 
server (version 4.16).

I use this command to try and add the entries - 
ldapadd -x -f /home/ctfunder/directory.ldif -D cn=Manager,o=MyCompany,c=US

I get the following error - 

adding new entry "cn=Foo and Foo,ou=ESL,ou=People,o=MyCompany,c=US"
ldap_add: Undefined attribute type
        additional info: fonManagerDN: Dø      D

ldif_record() = 17

Can someone explain this error to me? Do I need to create a new object? If so
