As
.B slapadd
is designed to accept LDIF in database order, as produced by
.BR slapcat (8),
it does not verify that superior entries exist before

adding an entry, does not perform all user and system
schema checks, and does not maintain operational
attributes (such as createTimeStamp and modifiersName).
