i can't get openldap to create the initial base, 'dc=,dc=' and
snippet from slapd.conf:
suffix "dc=ITG, dc=IE"
rootdn "cn=Manager, dc=ITG, dc=IE"
[root at florence /tmp]# rm -rf /var/lib/ldap/*
[root at florence /tmp]# cat base.ldif
o: ITG Group
dn: cn=Manager, dc=ITG, dc=IE
[root at florence /tmp]# ldapadd -f ./base.ldif -D "cn=manager, dc=itg,
dc=ie" -w acme
adding new entry dc=IE
ldap_add: DSA is unwilling to perform
ldap_add: additional info: operation upon null (empty) DN disallowed
what am i doing wrong? the base.ldif is more or less a trimmed version of
the output from migrate_base.pl. I've searched around and all i find is
that "DSA is unwilling to perform" is pretty much a generic error message,
and i can't find anything useful related to "null DN disallowed" and
slapd on google et al..
what am i missing?
