>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 
> lam.sourceforge.net
> 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  
> http://www.iit.edu/~gawojar/ldap/  It's a java based tool, so you'll 
> need a jdk (maybe just the jre).

-------------- Original message -------------- 

> I've been trying to get OpenLDAP running and I found this article that I 
> thought could help me get going: 
> http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/8119 
> I created an initial LDIF file based on content in the article; a segment of 
> that file looks like this: 
> dn:ou=contacts,ou=people,dc=jtseng,dc=org 
> 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 
> result: 
> 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...
