Again, as with several of your other threads, reading the documentation would have solved your problem, as would a quick Google search. You need to try these things first, before posting questions. As clearly stated in the OpenLDAP docs, you need an empty line before each line starting with "dn:"
LDIF separates entries by blank lines.

Also, you rarely, if ever, have posted a follow-up or even said thanks for anyone helping you.

Really?? So since you have solved the issue, why don't you post what you did to solve it? You came here for help, as others will also, so posting the solution would be a good thing.

Yes, but you don't say anything about which "tool automation" to use...and posted a link to configure an LDAP server, which the OP already had done. Also, this thread was not only already resolved, with the solution posted, but had been closed for two years at this point. Please see the LQ Rules about reopening old threads and/or posting without adding any new information.
