On my (umich-ldap-3.3 based) LDAP server, I didn't need to
create the root entries in the tree. My tree is rooted
at "dn: o=Blue Tree Systems, c=IE", and I have no "dn: c=IE"
I know this probably doesn't help much, and things might be
slightly different in OpenLDAP, but you might be able to get
away with out the "dn: dc=IE" entry.
Alternatively, try using ldif2ldbm to bootstrap your database.
