# LDAP notes

## LDAP Troubleshooting

I needed to add an attribute to an entry. It is atributo5 and the LDIF looks like that:

dn: uid=test,ou=foo,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
atributo5: bla


When trying to add it with ldapmodify I got this error:

ldap_modify: Object class violation (65)
additional info: attribute 'atributo5' not allowed


I'm not a LDAP expert. After some research and talking to the local LDAP administrator, I discovered that LDAP entries had classes attached to them. I discovered that the class that implemented it is otherAttributesClass so I had to add it to the entry first. So I did that with the following LDIF:

dn: uid=test,ou=foo,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
