Nonsense. You  can't, for example, call a person an organization. If you
try to, it won't work.

One defines an organization when there's talk about an o: objectClass.

Howard pointed the following out yesterday. In your Openldap
distribution directory there is a subdirectory doc/rfc. In there, you'll
find most of the history and present practical use of schemas and how to
implement them. As well as how Openldap (and x500) works. Took me about
2 1/2 hours this morning to go through.

You asked people to contact you privately by email and I did. One of the
things I said, was that a standard Solaris 8 installation installs its
own libraries, clients, daemons etc. and you'll get conflicts. Use pkgrm
diligently. ldapadd *does* have -x, but you're using the Solaris 8 one,
that doesn't, since that's the default on your box. Since you blindly
went ahead and ignored what others have said, why do you ask?

But you don't *want* to use Solaris ldap. You want to use Openldap.

An other thing I suggested, was get to hold of a Linux machine and
practice on that, first. That way, you'll know what is supposed to
