I am getting the following error when I attempt to add the account objectclass to an existing LDAP account:
invalid structural object class chain (inetOrgPerson/account)
I read an explanation of which the cliffnote version was “an person is a person, not an account, so the two objectclasses can’t be on the same entry”.
While that logic makes sense, I have many accounts on a Sun Directory instance that have both objectclasses. I am trying to migrate entries from Sun to an existing OpenLDAP instance, but because of this error I am unable to implement this objectclass. Ultimately, the functionality I am trying to implement is Linux Authentication. I have successfully added posixAccount and shadowAccount objectclasses, but am unable to add account.
Any thoughts? Thanks much!!!,
