Re: Missing attributes

Hello Michael,

- gecos is an attribute of the object class posixAccount: See RFC2307.
Just include nis.schema (delivered with OpenLDAP) in slapd.conf.

- comment: I'm not sure. Probably it comes from the Microsoft ADS schema, see e.g. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms676199.aspx. The object class you'd need seems to be mailRecipient (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms682368.aspx).

I'd recommend NOT to use 'comment' but something different (e.g. description or gecos) - so you don't have to reimplement parts of the ADS schema in OpenLDAP.

Best regards,  Jochen.

Hi list,

I'm in the process of migrating a Red Hat OpenLDAP setup to SLED 10.
I've got most things working however I'm trying to import an ldif
which has a "gecos" and "comment" attribute but when I import the ldif
I get these errors:

You need to load whatever schema was creating the "comment" attribute.

You need to fix your LDIF to include the objectClass that allows "gecos". If that is compatible with inetOrgPerson. Basically, you were using an old version, likely with schemachecking off, and so someone abused that in creating the data in your system, and you get to be the one to fix it. ;)
