in reply to Net::LDAP::Entry->update hangs

Could you post the equivalent LDIF for this record? Also, have you checked the errors logs on the LDAP server to see what it thought was going on?

Just some other, random debug thoughts. Have you tried to seperate the creation from the population of the fields -- ie,

$entry = new Net::LDAP::Entry->new; $entry->dn($dn); $entry->update($ldap); $entry->add....

If I can see the resultant LDIF, I may be able to offer more assistance.

    Yes - I did try what you suggested. The error I got is that no attributes are available for updating. *grr!* There was some other thing I saw in Net::LDAP::Entry about using 'newrdn' attribute and changetype('moddn').. that didn't work either. Here's what I did to create an LDIF:
    open(FILE, ">$u.ldif"); Net::LDAP::LDIF->new(\*FILE, "w")->write($entry); close FILE;
    Here's the result:
