Re: ldap_add: No such object - another one

As the error message says: parent does not exist
you have to add also dc=name,dc=com before you can add ou=employee

Kind regards,

        Subject:        ldap_add: No such object - another one

I have defined my files as follows, and do not know what I have done wrong 
- I have only started using LDAP.
slapd.conf extract:

database                 ldbm
suffix                           "dc=name,dc=com"
rootdn                           "dc=name,dc=com"
index            objectClass             eq

My ldif file - 

dn: ou=employee,dc=name,dc=com
ou: employee
description: Staff list
objectclass: top
objectclass: organizationalUnit
ou: employee

dn: ForeName=Sonia,ou=employee,dc=name,dc=com
ForeName: Sonia
SurName1: Gillespie
Department: dept
TelephoneNumber1: 02890509301
objectclass: nameDirectory

And I get the following error - 

add ou:
add description:
        Staff within Lagan
add objectclass:
adding new entry ou=employee,dc=lagan,dc=com
ldap_add: No such object
ldap_add: additional info: parent does not exist

Can anyone help me?
