If you're trying to populate eDirectory's Home Address using LDAP, here are several techniques to keep the going good.

Use this technique to add Home Address info to users that have never had the info in their object:

dn: cn=iwilliams,ou=users,o=novell
changetype: modify
add: objectclass
objectClass: homeInfo
-
replace: homeZipCode
homeZipCode: 10017
-
replace: homePostalAddress
homePostalAddress: issac williams$330 E46 ST$ $New York$NY$10017
-
replace: homeState
homeState: NY
-
replace: homeCity
homeCity: New York
-
replace: co
co: USA

If you've already entered address info, the auxclass homeInfo will exist already. If you use the above technique on these objects, you'll run into an error. Here's how to add Home Address in this case:

dn: cn=iwilliams,ou=users,o=novell
changetype: modify
replace: homeZipCode
homeZipCode: 10017
-
replace: homePostalAddress
homePostalAddress: issac williams$330 E46 ST$ $New York$NY$10017
-
replace: homeState
homeState: NY
-
replace: homeCity
homeCity: New York
-
replace: co
co: USA

For an Add use this code:

dn: cn=iforst,ou=users,o=novell
changetype: add
objectClass: homeInfo
objectClass: user
cn: iforst
sn: forst
homeZipCode: 10017
homePostalAddress: issac forst$330 E46 ST$ $New York$NY$10017
homeState: NY
homeCity: New York
co: USA
