Re: Adding Initial Entries via ldapadd and ldif file

All -

Your quick responses all worked out well. Peter and Mike were correct in their responses, and Sam caught on to the mistake at the end of the ldif. I got it from the tutorial, obviously.

I am getting an error with the dn line of my own entry though.
"dn: cn=pstickney,ou=People,dc=pvpsc,dc=com"

ldapadd: invalid format (line 13) entry: "cn=pstickney,ou=People,dc=pvpsc,dc=com"

I'm very new to ldap, but I am slowly getting it.
Thanks all

You need to create your base domain object. You need to add something
like this at the top of your LDIF file:

dn: dc=pvpsc,dc=com
objectClass: dcObject
objectClass: organization
o: My Company
dc: pvpsc

Did you mean "dn: cn=staff,ou=Groups,dc=pvpsc,dc=com" for the last entry of your LDIF file?
