Ldap syntax wrong ?


what is wrong with the following ldif file :

dn: dc=mydomain
objectclass: dcObject 
objectclass: organization 
o: My Ldap 
dc: mydomain

dn: cn=Manager,dc=mydomain
objectclass: organizationalRole 
cn: Manager
Because I get following output :
[root@1 ~]# /usr/bin/ldapadd -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=mydomain" -W -f /etc/openldap/basic.ldif 
Enter LDAP Password: 
adding new entry "dc=mydomain"
ldapadd: Invalid syntax (21)
	additional info: objectclass: value #0 invalid per syntax

Are you trying to recreate the root LDAP tree? If not and it exists, then you only have to put in the file the new entries (regardless the error message is accurate or not). If so, then you should use slapcat/slapadd with ldap stopped.

You can take a look at "man ldapadd" or the relevan man pages for examples.
