The last line
unique_ignore objectClass ou o dc
is not mandatory, but I've seen a line along those lines in many examples on the net.
Leave it out if you don't understand its meaning...

Do *you* understand its meaning? Did you notice that your "unique_ignore" line is only a comment, and serves no purpose at all?

As the manpage states, you generally only need one of "unique_attributes" or "unique_ignore". In this case, just leave out the unique_ignore.
