>From a previous discussion-
> There's a web based tool named lam (ldap account manager) that can be
> used to help you get started with ldap (and samba). The website is
> I was using it when I was trying to get samba to authenticate against
> ldap. My memory is that I connected to my ldap server and it set up
> initial ou's and what not. It is geared toward samba/ldap integration,
> but it could also be used to deal with a directory set up linux system
> authentication or for white pages kind of information.
> Another tool I have used to do little tweaks is ldapbrowser

-------------- Original message --------------
> 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...
