So first and foremost, I"m really new to ldap. I'm trying to setup an
expiramental server, learn my way around, and eventually deploy it for a
small group of unix boxen for authentication, hosts, protocols, name
service, and the like.
So the server is running RedHat 7.3 with the latest patches. I installed
OpenLDAP via RPMs (openldap, openldap-client, openldap-server,
openldap-devel if I remember correctly), and based on a few HowTo's I
found, I made a sample LDIF file:
Which I tried to add with:
slapadd -l example.ldif
to which I got:
slapadd: dn="o=example.com,c=US" (line=4): object class 'organization'
requires attribute 'o'
But as you can see I have an o attribute. Also sometimes I would get a
line error on blank lines... but it doesn't seem to be regularly
Lastly, the howto I read actually said to use ldif2ldbm prior to
starting the server instead of slapadd after starting server, but the
RPMs don't seem to come with an ldif2ldbm, so I chose this route
instead. As far as I can tell that should be OK, right?
