the man of ldif.... your advice has gotten me
 quite far both in my current implementation and in my overall
 understanding of LDAP which I am hoping grows with each passing day.
  In my attempt to build my current directory, I have taken a dump of
 my last successful implementation (which was created on FreeBSD 8.1)
 and substituted values for the dc=company and dc=com values with the
 correct ones for the current directory (attempting to implement under
 CentOS 5.4) and even tho the correct schemas are in place it is
 choking on this entry:
 # defaults, sudoers, Services,
 dn: cn=defaults,ou=sudoers,ou=Services,dc=acadaca,dc=net
 objectClass: top
 objectClass: sudoRole
 cn: defaults
 description: Default sudoOption's go here
 And again I should have all the schemas in place to make this work...
 include         /etc/openldap/schema/core.schema
 include         /etc/openldap/schema/cosine.schema
 include         /etc/openldap/schema/inetorgperson.schema
 include         /etc/openldap/schema/nis.schema
 include         /etc/openldap/schema/misc.schema
 inlcude         /etc/openldap/schema/sudoers.schema
 include         /etc/openldap/schema/openldap.schema
 [ ldif]# ldapadd -h ldap -a -w secret -x -D
 "cn=Manager,dc=acadaca,dc=net" -f
 adding new entry
 ldapadd: Invalid syntax (21)
 additional info: objectClass: value #1 invalid per syntax
 Why this ldif will work in one directory but not another is a mystery
 at this point..
 thanks again
	I'd be checking in a schema browser- make sure your objectclasses are
all present and accounted for, plus your attributes and syntaxes
