And that would be the problem :-|

Thank you for your help.<shuffles feet in an embarrassed fashion>

cn=config is an LDAP database, it is not a collection of files for you to edit by hand. You are supposed to use ldapmodify on it, for reasons of this very nature. I.e., ldapmodify gets syntax-checked and stupid typos of this sort get caught.

If you had used "ldapmodify -H ldapi:/// -Y EXTERNAL" to add the desired attributes you wouldn't have these silly problems.

If your LDAP browsers don't support ldapi:/// that's their deficiency...
