creating directory tree from scratch
I have the following LDIF:
That works fine if I use ldapadd to add it as the first entry in my
empty directory tree. I can then use my custom java client to add users
or OUs or whatever. The problem arises when I use that same set of data
in my custom client to create that directory entry as the first entry. I
get the error "no global superior knowledge". I'm adding the entry as a
single entry with a dn attribute of dc=mydomain,dc=com. Is the ldapadd
program splitting the dc items apart and adding them separately in order
to not produce the same error I get through my GUI?
If I attempt to create the two dc items separately I can add dc=com with
my GUI as the first entry using the following:
But then if I try to add dc=mydomain with my GUI as a second entry it
doesn't end up getting put at the same level but ends up as an actual OU
under dc=com instead. That may or may not be because of what I use for
the entry which is the following:
Is that the wrong set of attributes to use for a secondary dc entry?
Should I be adding these separately or in the same step? And if they
should be added in the same step then does anyone have any idea why the
same data works in an LDIF but not anywhere else?
