Re: extended characterset/binary/base64 support
Hi Sorry Dieter,
I have been trying to redo everything from the beginning, and now I
have got everything right except the same problem. Here is the error
which slapadd generates:
>>> dnPrettyNormal: <uid=ddmartin,o=trac>
<<< dnPrettyNormal: <uid=ddmartin,o=trac>, <uid=ddmartin,o=trac>
str2entry: invalid value for attribute clientorg (syntax
slapadd: could not parse entry (line=102853)
slapadd shutdown: initiated
slapadd shutdown: freeing system resources.
the entry in the ldiff file which corresponds to this uid is :
cn: Douglas Martin
Thanks & Regards
