I am trying to do an ldif import of a test user and I am getting the
following error. I am able to export with no problem. Below also is
a copy of my ldf file. Any ideas?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting.

    I copied your script and saved it as TestUser.ldf and used the following
    command to import the user:

    ldifde -i -f testuser.ldf -s dc1

    where dc1 is the name for my test domain controller.

    It executed successfully without any errors.

    I executed it as domain administrator.

    Please check for permissions on the file and also try executing the script
    from the folder where it is stored.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you,
    Rashmi
