Appreciated. I tried to google for this information but could not find it.

Ok well it looks like I needed the -x operation for plaintext authentication which seems to be working ok.

Here is the command I am using now:
%>  ldapmodify -v -x -f .UID2SID/modify-06.23.2008-mclame.ldif -h domain
-D username -w password

Here is the ldif file:
dn: CN=mclame mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain
changetype: modrdn
newrdn: CN=mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain
deleteoldrdn: 1

And here is the error I am recieving:
ldap_initialize( ldap://domain )
modifying rdn of entry "CN=mclame mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain"
          new RDN: "CN=mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain" (do not keep existing
rename completed
ldapmodify: Naming violation (64)
          additional info: 00000057: LdapErr: DSID-0C090987, comment:
Error in attribute conversion operation, data 0, vece

Any assistance is appreciated.

Your problem seems to be unrelated to any aspect of OpenLDAP software, and thus is not relevant to this mailing list. It seems you simply don't understand LDAP. For general LDAP questions, try ldap@umich.edu.

Hint: learn the difference between a DN and an RDN.

on the ldapmodify command I would appreciate it.
Look at the LDIF modification examples in RFC 2849.

The contents of the modify-06.19.2008-mclame.ldif
dn: CN=mclame mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain,DC=com
changetype: modify
modify: dn cn msSFUName unixHomeDirectory msSFUHomeDirectory
uidNumber gidNumber loginShell
There is no basis in LDIF for this last line that I know of.

dn: CN=mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain,DC=com
This is not how you change the dn of an entry. Read about "changetype:

cn: mclame
cn: mclame
What is the point of having duplicate values here?

msSFUName: mclame
unixHomeDirectory: /home/mclame
msSFUHomeDirectory: /home/mclame

Again, you probably need to spend some quality time with RFC 2849 and
any other resources you have on LDIF.
