Re: Invalid syntax  on ldapadd

I think posixAccount requires homeDirectory as well.   W/o that your syntax is invalid because the objectclass is being violated.

        ( nisSchema.2.0 NAME 'posixAccount' SUP top AUXILIARY
         DESC 'Abstraction of an account with POSIX attributes'
         MUST ( cn $ uid $ uidNumber $ gidNumber $ homeDirectory )
         MAY ( userPassword $ loginShell $ gecos $ description ) )

Hi, I'm very new ldap, and i'm wondering if you guys can help me with something.

I'm going over the some tutorials to setup ldap for authentication.  However, I can't seem to be able to add any users or groups.  

I'm Solaris 9, w/ openldap 2.3.35.  

my slapd.conf looks like:

database        bdb

suffix                "dc=caplan,dc=org"

rootdn                "cn=root,dc=caplan,dc=org"

rootpw                <PASSWORD>

directory        /usr/local/var/openldap-data

index                objecClass,uid,uidNumer,gidNumber eq

index                cn eq

the user i'm trying to add is:

dn: uid=ldapauth,dc=caplan,dc=org

objectclass: account

objectclass: posixAccount

objectclass: top

cn: ldapauth

uid: ldapauth

uidNumber: 100

gidNumber: 100

I have no trailling spaces.

my add commands is :

ldapadd -D "cn=root,dc=caplan,dc=org" -f <File>

no matter what i do i get "Invalid syntax"

Thanks in advance,
