could i just go through the file and replace IA5String with


to be quite honest i have no idea why this error is caused or why
OpenLDAP isn't recognizing IA5String

It's just following the LDAP standard. But why the standard only defines descriptions and not names for syntax OIDs I don't know.

Definitely a mystery, especially since X.500 allowed names...

But you can always use the objectidentifier keyword in slapd.conf to handle this. See slapd.conf(5).
