Re: DB_KEYEXIST: Key/data pair already exists

I have 2 users with identical Full Name and their ldif change on mail,
uid, username and home directory in order to avoid ldap constraints.
However, even though I have no other constraints apart from
unique_attributes uid mail uidNumber homeDirectory I'm getting the
following error and cannot add the 2nd user.
root@masterldap:~# slapadd -l debug.ldif -f /etc/ldap/slapd.conf
=> hdb_tool_entry_put: id2entry_add failed: DB_KEYEXIST: Key/data pair
already exists (-30996)
=> hdb_tool_entry_put: txn_aborted! DB_KEYEXIST: Key/data pair already
slapadd: could not add entry dn="cn=Full
Name,ou=Users,dc=mydomain,dc=com" (line=1): txn_aborted! DB_KEYEXIST:
Key/data pair already exists (-30996)
Any ideas how I can see which attribute is causing the problem?
The problem attribute is "cn". Since you are using cn (and not uid, which
I would advise) as the RDN value, they must be different. This is why
using cn for an RDN value is a bad idea.
