Error while creating entries in OpenLDAP


        I've recently installed  OpenLDAP 2.2.17 with  BerkeleyDB 4.2.52 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 machine.

        When I tried to populate the directory server with the LDIF files I have, I got following errors for few entries. Others worked fine.

        Error #1) 
                dn: cn=Canada, ou=Search, o=IMC, c=US
                aliasedobjectname: ou=Americas, ou=Search, o=IMC, c=US
                objectclass: top
                objectclass: alias
                objectclass: aliasObject
                Error Message Recieved:

                            additional info: objectclass: value #2 invalid per syntax

                            additional info: value of naming attribute 'cn' is not present in entry

                Note : The same entry worked for the dn: cn=Jonathan Adams, ou=Europe, ou=Search, o=IMC, c=US (Note that the string within bracket is not present here)

                Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance,
