Re: correct structural object class for ou=People

Thank you for the response. Sorry for not providing enough information. Here's the complete entry I'm trying to add. The strange thing is that my entry already had a structural objectClass. I can provide the schema that supports the non-standard attributes as well (though I'm pretty sure its completely irrelevant to the problem at hand).

	thanks again for your time,

ou=People went in just fine (as follows):

ou: People
objectClass: top
objectClass: organizationalUnit

So the contents of that entry is not relevant.

However when i try to add an entry below this one i still get the

Which object class you should use for the person entries depends on what
you put in them and what they are used for.  So it would be better to
show us one of these entries if you want good suggestions.

That said, since you call them people I guess you want the objectclass
'person' or a subclass of it.  Maybe organizationalPerson or
residentialPerson (see etc/openldap/schema/core.schema), inetOrgPerson
(inetorgperson.schema) or pilotPerson (cosine.schema).

Or if you have user account info under ou=People, despite the name,
you'll probably want 'account' (cosine.schema).  And maybe add the
auxiliary class 'posixAccount' (nis.schema).

If you haven't got an agenda, chances are good that you're
not doing much useful.   --Stephen Frost
