Look at the schema definition of 'createTimestamp'. It's an operational
attribute. Operational attributes are maintained by the LDAP server and
cannot be written by a client application.

For the initial migration you could prepare an LDIF file holding all
your entries and bulk-load it with slapadd (slapd not running!). slapadd
adds values for operational attributes if present. Make sure your values
for 'createTimestamp' comply to the GeneralizedTime syntax.
