Re: slapadd: could not parse entry (line=13)

Ok I just tried slapadd and didn't complain and i was able to import the entries. 
  This is weird, I didn't do any change, same openldap version, same box , same ldif file. It just decided to work by itself.

Run the slapadd with debug enabled and see what the actual problem is.
