Question openldap ldif file problem


Hello everybody,
core.schema file, is there a conflict with it somewhere?

greetz,
.-=~ iluvatar ~=-.
i'm trying to configure my openldap server for user authentication, using the howto from www.tldp.org. the first lines of the ldif file look like this:
Code:
dn: dc=foo,dc=bar
objectClass: top
objectClass: organizationalUnit
when trying to add this to the server with the ldapadd command, it returns "attribute 'dc' is not present in entry". however if I add 'dc:foo' to the entry, ldapadd returns "attribute 'dc' not allowed". is there a conflict in the schema file? only core.schema is included in slapd.conf... didn't alter that one.

greetz,

Hi,

yes we figured this out, but I don't know exactly how our scheme looks like at this moment. I'll dig this up from our internal documentation... We had some scripts for adding organization and users I thought I'll post as I find those... (may take until next monday)

Greetz,

No problem, something I did was that I had to create an organization underneath the second level DC like so

( suffix is dc=fortezzazone,dc=org )

dc: dc=fortezzazone,dc=org
objectClass: top
objectClass: organizationalUnit
dc: fortezzazone



after that, I could add people, ou's etc with no problem. That little tidbit was not in any of the docs. Btw, I switched off of OpenLDAP and now run Fedora Directory Server, which is much easier to set up and administrate.

pam_ldap still does not work for me, but I will figure that out eventually.

Peace
