I am using ldapadd utility which is provided by openladap itself.
For that purpose  i have created idif  file but if i ran file command its output shows that it encoding is different.

       $ file test.ldif
       test.ldif: Non-ISO extended-ASCII text

May be this is the root cause of problem

But due to other reason i do not want to change the encoding of the system.

So their is any way such that it can be  work in this conf also?
