Could anybody help me with a question regarding the uidPool object class
described in Gerald Carter's LDAP System Administration book? The idea
is to provide a means of storing the next avaliable uidNumber in the
directory for atomic updates. I have pulled the schema from the author's
site, the schema file contents are as follows:
## Used for storing the next gid and next uid in the the directory
objectclass ( 22.214.171.124.4.1.7126.96.36.199.3 NAME 'uidPool' SUP top AUXILIARY
DESC 'Pool for allocating UNIX uids'
MUST ( uidNumber $ cn ) )
objectclass ( 188.8.131.52.4.1.7184.108.40.206.4 NAME 'gidPool' SUP top AUXILIARY
DESC 'Pool for allocating UNIX gids'
MUST ( gidNumber $ cn ) )
This has been included in my slapd.conf file and the deamon restarted. I
now want to add the following ldif:
dn: cn=ID Pool,ou=people,dc=nqe,dc=com
cn: ID Pool
When I try to run ldapadd with this I am told that I get an Object Class
mta:/tmp# ldapadd -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=nqe,dc=com" -W -f /tmp/uidpool.ldif
Enter LDAP Password:
adding new entry "cn=NQE ID Pool,ou=people,dc=nqe,dc=com"
ldapadd: update failed: cn=NQE ID Pool,ou=people,dc=nqe,dc=com
ldap_add: Object class violation (65)
additional info: no structural object class provided
Can anyone tell me what I need to put in the "structuralObjectClass: "
parameter in the LDIF to get this to work? I have had a look at the RFC
but it's been a while since I took my rocket science degree so any
pointers would be really appreciated!
Thanks in advance
