Where is the schema definition for "ssauser" ? It is not in the extract above, 
and this is the objectclass being complained about.

We can't tell, since it may be that you have no definition for this 
objectclass, and if you do, we can't tell you anything about it (since it is 
missing in this mail).

Most likely not.

Only if you provide sufficient information to be able to help ...

BTW, you say you created the schema file, but did you include it in your 
slapd.conf ? Did you restart slapd after that ?
