Re: Invalid syntax on ldapadd

At the prompt, type the commands below.  It will put ldapadd in a mode that accepts data via standard in via the terminal, so you just type and press return.  At the end, press return twice, and it should try to add your entry, and then you can press CTRL+C if it does not drop you back to a prompt.    Adjust to wherever your openldap based ldapadd binary is.     Please be sure you followed the quickstart guide on the OpenLDAP website and setup your DC in openldap too. 


$> /usr/local/openldap/bin/ldapadd -x -D cn=root,dc=caplan,dc=org -H ldap://ldap.server:port -W
<enter password>

dn: uid=ldapauth,dc=caplan,dc=org
objectClass: account
objectClass: posixAccount
objectClass: top
cn: ldapauth
uid: ldapauth
uidNumber: 100
gidNumber: 100
homeDirectory: /dev/null

<press return twice>

Keep replies on the list if you want further help.

type "which ldapadd" to see where the ldapadd you are using is located.  If
you don't know where the OpenLDAP installation put things, I suggest you
figure that out first.
