I'm using OpenLDAP 2.2.8. I'm using BDB for my back end. I'm new to Linux and OpenLDAP so please bear with me.|
I've got my ldap server up and running. I've written a perl script that gets user information from a MS SQL server database and creates an LDIF file from it. The first 11998 entries load just fine until I run into a problem with postalAddress. The error message follows.
adding new entry "firstname.lastname@example.org,ou=mydomain.com,o=parentcompany"
I can't show the users entire LDIF entry because of privacy issues but the line with postalAddress follows.
postalAddress: 21 boulevard poissonnière
This is the only entry in my entire LDIF that has the è character and I wonder if that is what is causing the problem. I thought that LDAP 2.2.8 was natively UTF-8 compliant and didn't think that I would have any problems with a character like this (if that is even the problem). I've read the portion of RFC2256 that pertain to postalAddress but don't see anything that gives me a clue:). I searched a little on google and found a site that describes OIDs. I didn't find anything there either. Any help or clues would be greatly appreciated.
