RE: ldapd vs. slapd

Okay. I did that. I must be missing something else:

adding new entry "dc=org"
ldap_add: Server is unwilling to perform (53)
        additional info: no global superior knowledge

Google says that means I'm adding something to a domain that doesn't exist
yet. Of course it doesn't exist yet. That's why I'm adding it.

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
