The second LDAP server I've created would not start before the 
reinstall, but I can't replicate this problem any more. I was also able 
to add a top-level organizational unit now.

The earlier problems began after I've deleted the top-level entry on the 
Configuration tab. That was probably not a smart thing to do, but I 
don't know how to delete all the data from the directory. Command-line 
ldapdelete won't work either, because recursive deletion is not 
supported by the server.

Okay - thanks!

You can, of course, I just wanted to emphasize that they serve two 
different purposes.

is equivalent to Roosevelt's declaring war on blitzkrieg.
