I'm trying to add a user to multiple groups using an ldif file.  Here's
how I'm attempting to do so:

dn: uid=user,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org
cn: User Man
gidNumber: 1000, 1004, 1010

gidNumber: 1000 gidNumber: 1004 gidNumber: 1010

That's how you multi-value things in LDAP. Assuming gidNumber is multi valued, that should work.


objectClass: top
objectClass: posixAccount
objectClass: shadowAccount
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
sn: Man
uid: User
uidNumber: 1030

When I try to ldapadd this entry I get the following error:

adding new entry "uid=user,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org"
ldapadd: update failed: uid=user,ou=people,dc=example,dc=org
ldap_add: Invalid syntax (21)
        additional info: gidNumber: value #0 invalid per syntax

Am I doing something wrong here?  Thanks for any help in advance.
