    In step 11 I had to remove -Y EXTERNAL to not get this error:

    ldapadd: incompatible with previous authentication choice
    

    This did work:

    # ldapadd -x -D cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com -W -f baseldapdomain.ldif
    

    Thank you for the many times you helped me out already!

      In step 10, when I run the command ldapmodify -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:/// -f ldapdomain.ldif, I had this error : (ldap_modify : Invalid DN syntax(34) additional info: invalid DN).

      Help me please..
