Need OpenLDAP Help

Hi, all:
I'm studying for the RHCE and have hit the section on configuring an OpenLDAP client. I'd like to practice this, but I can't get an OpenLDAP server set up. I followed the directions in RedHat's Deployment Guide, and it looks like the server is up and running, but I can't get the directory populated.

I try to do the initial population with the following (as root):


dn: dc=lohman,dc=home
objectClass: dcObject
objectClass: organization
o: Home

# ldapadd -xf ~/entry
adding new entry "dc=lohman,dc=home"
ldapadd: Invalid DN syntax (34)
additional info: invalid DN

My OpenLDAP server is hp01.lohman.home (using internal dns for my home network).

I also tried installing phpldapadmin, but for whatever reason, I can't log into that. When I installed it, the original ldap.conf that I placed the password into (per RH Deployment Guide instructions) turned up missing, and there appears to be a different ldap.conf file in its place.

Any ideas?

ber_memalloc, ber_memcalloc, ber_memrealloc, ber_memfree, ber_memvfree - OpenLDAP LBER memory allocators LIBRARY
OpenLDAP LBER (liblber, -llber) SYNOPSIS
#include <lber.h> void *ber_memalloc(ber_len_t bytes); void *ber_memcalloc(ber_len_t nelems, ber_len_t bytes); void *ber_memrealloc(void *ptr, ber_len_t bytes); void ber_memfree(void *ptr); void ber_memvfree(void **vec); DESCRIPTION
These routines are used to allocate/deallocate memory used/returned by the Lightweight BER library as required by lber-encode(3) and lber- decode(3). ber_memalloc(), ber_memcalloc(), ber_memrealloc(), and ber_memfree() are used exactly like the standard malloc(3), calloc(3), realloc(3), and free(3) routines, respectively. The ber_memvfree() routine is used to free a dynamically allocated array of pointers to arbitrary dynamically allocated objects. SEE ALSO
