    LDIF syntax for adding an already created custom attribute to OU

    Hello, we are running a server/domain and need some help regarding the same. Due to some reasons in need to update the organizationalUnit class by adding a new attribute provided below using an LDIF file. For your information I have verified the that schema is already updated with this new attribute. Here is the LDIF sample:

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    dn:
    CN=Organizational-Unit,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,CN={58ED96B9-692B-4293-9766-31C0B471C0FE}
    changeType: modify
    mayContain: orgCd

    dn:
    changeType: modify
    add: schemaUpdateNow
    schemaUpdateNow: 1
    -

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    here is the output of hte LDIFDE command....

    -----------------
    D:\ADAM_LDIF_FILES\Schema_Modification>ldifde -i -f
    d:\ADAM_LDIF_FILES\Schema_Mo
    dification\add_org_cd_to_ou.ldf -s localhost:50012 -k -j . -v
    Connecting to "localhost:50012"
    Logging in as current user using SSPI
    Importing directory from file
    "d:\ADAM_LDIF_FILES\Schema_Modification\add_org_cd
    _to_ou.ldf"
    Loading entries

    There is a syntax error in the input file
    Failed on line 8. The last token starts with '1'.
    0 entries modified successfully.
    An error has occurred in the program
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I have already searched Google, Microosft MSDN and AMAM for the correct syntax that needs to be added in a custom attribute to an existing class but dint found it anywhere. So my question is can somebody from here please help me telling me the correct Syntax? Please help.

    Re: LDIF syntax for adding an already created custom attribute to OU

    I am trying to perform a sync of AD, when I ran ADSchemaAnalyzer I performed the following:

    Load Target Schema = my DC:389 (all other fields empty)
    Load Base Schema = my ADAM server:389 (all other fields empty)
    Create LDIF file = filename.ldf (created)

    RAN - LDIFDE -i -e localhost -c CN=Configuration,
    DC=X #ConfigurationNamingContext -f filename.ldf

    I received an error "Last token starts with '1'.

    Can anyone explain this?

    Thanks
