    Maybe I'm wrong because your HTML e-mail formatting might have added
    this. But it seems to me your file cwagon.ldif contains extra empty
    lines. Note that an empty line is the separator between records in a
    LDIF file. So your entry uid=cwagon,ou=People,dc=network,dc=com seems to
    be empty since an empty line follows the line starting with dn:.

    Ciao, Michael.

Cool, it wasn't blank lines but actual whitespace preceeding each line.... I did not know about ldif files and how white space is treated.


It's in the spec for LDIF and mentioned many times in our docs and FAQ ;-)
