LDAP server


Hi all,

I'm using Fedora Core 6 and Open LDAP server 2.3.27. but LDAP server is not working
well. phpldapadmin and gq tools are working nicely but they also can not access ldap
records. I can not insert any record into the LDAP server using slapadd command. when i
tring as follows it gives errors.

[root@localhost ~]# slapadd -l ldap.ldif
str2entry: entry -1 has no dn
slapadd: could not parse entry (line=8)
[root@localhost ~]#

here is my ldap.ldif file

1 # Organization for Example Corporation
2 dn:dc=ceit,dc=pdn,dc=ac,dc=lk
3 objectClass: dcObject
4 objectClass: organization
5 dc: ceit
6 o: Center of Information Technology

9 # Organizational Role for Directory Manager
10 dn:cn=Manager,dc=ceit,dc=pdn,dc=ac,dc=lk
11 objectClass: organizationalRole
12 cn: Manager

here is my slap.conf file

# The next three lines allow use of TLS for encrypting connections using a

# may balk at self-signed certificates, however.

# access to *

# if no access controls are present, the default policy
# allows anyone and everyone to read anything but restricts
# updates to rootdn. (e.g., "access to * by * read")
#
# rootdn can always read and write EVERYTHING!

I guess that the line numbers are put by you and do not exist in the real ldif file. If not you have to remove them. Furthermore even though I'm not an LDAP expert I think that you must have "objectClass: top" before any other "objectClass" declarations.

dn: dc=ceit,dc=pdn,dc=ac,dc=lk
objectClass: top
objectClass: dcObject
objectClass: organization
dc: ceit
o: Center of Information Technology
description: The Center of Information Technology

dn: cn=Manager,dc=ceit,dc=pdn,dc=ac,dc=lk
objectClass: organizationalRole
cn: Manager
description: Directory Manager

Also you can remove comments and leave a space between the "dn:" and "dc=" to see if it works:

Regards
