You're just starting out? Try adding your suffix itself first, e.g. perform an ldapadd on "dc=labbnet,dc=ne,dc=keryx,dc=se".

(Although I thought that would come up as 'no superior' or something...eh, it's not a case I test all that often.)


That helped. Thanks!

BTW, where is this in the manual?

Suggestion: Adding "The very first thing you add into your directory *must* be the organization object that corresponds to your settings in slapd.conf" will decrease the possibility of someone making my mistake (and yes I had read that part of the manual... Only I thought it was an example.)

On this address (which was súggested as an answer to my question by Buchan Milne) http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin23/dbtools.html#Creating%20a%20database%20over%20LDAP

it clearly says that it is an *example* of what one *might* add:

"For example, to add an organization entry and an organizational role entry using the ldapadd tool, you could create an LDIF file called entries.ldif with the contents..."

This had better be changed into saying that this *must* be the first thing one shall add!

Ergo: I had read the manual, it was not clear! No hard feelings, though.
