Something is definitely wrong. I've been scouring the Internet for

Yes, you have to create the database, starting from the top and working your way down.

My DB starts at "", so I have to create the entire structure starting at dc=com. Adjust accordingly for your db:

dn: dc=com
objectClass: organization
objectClass: dcObject
o: com domain
dc: com

dn: dc=vmware,dc=com
objectClass: organization
objectClass: dcObject
o: vmware domain
dc: vmware

dn: dc=eng,dc=vmware,dc=com
objectClass: organization
objectClass: dcObject
o: eng domain
dc: eng

dn: ou=people,dc=eng,dc=vmware,dc=com
objectClass: organizationalRole
ou: people
cn: people
