You didn't provide your configuration, so the assumption I made was that you 
were using online configuration, in which case you must bind as a user with 
write access to cn=config (for example the rootdn of the config database, which 
defaults to 'cn=config', but could have been setup as something different).

The error message here indicates that the DN you are using does not have write 
access to the config database.

If you aren't using online configuration, but slapd.conf, then you should just 
include the original schema file (usually ending in .schema) in your 
slapd.conf, and restart slapd.
