Re: ldap_add: Object class violation (65), additional info: attribute 'host' not allowed

Hi, Thanks for the quick response
I am using Debian wheezy.
I installed the ldapns.schema from the deb package but I still when I try to add a user (as a ldif file with a host attribute defined) a get the error

ldap_add: Object class violation (65)
    additional info: attribute 'host' not allowed
If I remove the host attribute (from  ldif file) the user is added successfully.
How can I get the host attribute working?
Many thanks

There is some information from the Debian wiki (https://wiki.debian.org/LDAP/PAM) on adding a host attribute to a user, but I'm sure it applies to other distro's as well:

To add the "host" attribute to a user, he should have an objectClass that supports this. The "account" objectClass has the attribute, but is not compatible with the "inetOrgPerson" objectClass. To work around this, you can use the "ldapns" schema, supplied with the libpam-ldap package. This schema provides the "hostObject" objectClass, which has the proper "host" attribute.
