    Hi Delhi,

     

    Thanks.

     

    My user import has worked out successfully. Only concern now is to assign the users to the correct group.

     

    I've created an ldif file like you mentioned earlier:

    dn: cn=group2, o=Your Company

    objectclass: groupOfUniqueNames

    cn: group2

    uniquemember: cn=tom, o=Your Company

    uniquemember: cn=dan,o=Your Company

    uniquemember: cn=sam,o=Your Company

     

    Now how to import it? I used the same ldapadd command but it gives: ldap_add: Already exists.

    Do I need to use ldapmodify...do you have the proper command/syntax for it?

     

    regards.

    use ldapmodify with same syntax:

     

    ldapmodify -h host -p port -D "cn=Directory Manager" -w Password -v -f group.ldif

    Hi Delhi,

     

    Here is what I get when I run the command:

     

    # ldapmodify -h ldapd01 -p 389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -w test1234 -v -f members.ldif -c

     

    ldapmodify: started Fri Jul 12 15:52:22 2013

     

    ldap_init( sapldapd01, 389 )

    ldapmodify: Missing changetype operation specification.

            The dn line must be followed by "changetype: operation"

            (unless ldapmodify is called with -a option)

            where operation is add|delete|modify|modrdn|moddn|rename

            "cn" is not a valid changetype operation specification

            (line 2 of entry cn=etax_itp,ou=groups,dc=mra,dc=mu)

     

    I'm trying different syntax but unable to get it right. Please suggest if ever you know of some other possibility.

     

    regards.

    if groups doesn't exist, then use this LDIF sample:

     

    dn: cn=group2, o=Your Company

    objectclass: groupOfUniqueNames

    cn: group2

    uniquemember: cn=tom, o=Your Company

    uniquemember: cn=dan,o=Your Company

    uniquemember: cn=sam,o=Your Company

     

    and if above group already exist and you want some users to be part of the above group, then use this:

     

    dn: cn=group2,dc=mra,dc=mu

    changetype: modify

    add: uniquemember

    uniquemember: uid=14300013,ou=users,dc=mra,dc=mu

     

    and run ldapmodify command

    Thanks Delhi,

     

    the above has worked successfully (the case where the group already exists).

     

    regards.
