OK, here's an example of what ldifde exported for me (I didn't put the 
entire entry for my user object since there are things such as phone 
number and address listed, but I can post the entire entry if requested; I 
would just mask that info out):

dn: CN=Devine\, Harry,CN=Users,DC=commonsds,DC=faa,DC=gov
changetype: add
objectClass: top
objectClass: person
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: user
cn: Devine, Harry
sn: Devine

Thanks,
Harry

Hi Harry, 
It basically means that the object class used to define the user in the 
directory from which you exported the user does not exist in 389 or is not 
available. It might also help to post an example of the ldif file here for 
people to have a look at. It will make debugging your problem much easier. 
You could probably either import the object class or replace the 
objectclass with a suitably similar ojbectclass in 389 directory.

An object class is a list of attributes grouped together to define an 
entry. You can combine multiple object classed to have more attributes 
available with which to "describe" an entry.

Best Regards

Thanks.  I'll keep that in mind.  While I have your attention, can I ask 
another question since I'm progressing along?  What I ultimately want to 
do is migrate from Microsoft Active Directory 2003 to 389 Directory 
Server.  I was reading up on how to export to an ldif file using ldifde. 
However, when I try to import the ldif file into my test 389 DS, I get an 
error for each user that says "entry <xxxx> has unknown object class 
"user" " (the <xxxx> is the CN= entry for that user).

All I've found in the docs online so far is how to sync between the DS and 
AD.  I don't want to sync; I want to basically migrate.  I can't find how 
to do that.  Any thoughts?

Thanks!
Harry

Yes.  You will need to open 389, 636, and 9830
