[CALUG] Trying to use OpenLDAP

I've been trying to get OpenLDAP running and I found this article that I 
thought could help me get going:


I created an initial LDIF file based on content in the article; a segment of 
that file looks like this:

associatedDomain: jtseng.org
ou: contacts
ou: people
objectClass: organizationaUnit
objectClass: domainRelatedObject

When I ran ldapadd to try and enter those entries I get the following 

adding new entry "ou=contacts,ou=people,dc=jtseng,dc=org"
ldap_add: Invalid syntax (21)
        additional info: objectClass: value #0 invalid per syntax

I thought maybe it was because my file had spaces in odd places but taking 
them all out didn't change anything.  Has anyone done this before?  What am 
I overlooking?  Thanks...
