Setting up a new openldap server on Centos 7. I am trying to add the
samba.schema that comes with samba. I got the schema file from the
newest distribution of Samba, copied it to /etc/openldap/schema, and ran
"ldapadd -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f /etc/openldap/schema/samba.schema".
This command worked perfectly with the cosine and inetorgperson schema
files, but I got an 'invalid format (line 1) entry: ""' response.
I grepped the internet for this response, and found that some people
have needed to change all "attryibutetype" entries to
So, I did that. It got me to line 2, where the leading descriptor is
"DESC". I changed all the "DESC" to "DESC:", which was also
moved me on to line 3, and so on. So, now I have gotten to line 236,
which is an objectclass statement, so I am lost.
None of the other files that worked with this exact same command syntax
has any of the colons on the descriptors (IDK what they are really
called), so I wonder if I'm not barking up the wrong tree.
I also can't find anything on the net that speaks to this issue, so I am
guessing that I probably have some other problem with the server.
