I assume that you have an ApacheDS up and running, and are able to 
connect from Groovy LDAP, i.e.

def ldap = LDAP.newInstance('ldap://localhost:10389', 'uid=admin, 
ou=system' ,'secret')

works without an error.

As far as I understand your requirement, you plan to add a suffix, 
"dc=epims, dc=com", and an entry below that.

Apache Directory Server comes with a default suffix "dc=example,dc=com" 
for demonstration purposes, which maps to a partition (a data store) 
within the configuration.

You therefore have to add a partition for your "dc=epims, dc=com". It is 
not quite common to accomplish this administration task programmatically 
(exception: an emedded server).

See details here

http://directory.apache.org/apacheds/1.5/143-adding-your-own-partition-resp-suffix.html

Please note that this line

def baseDNAttrs = [ objectclass: ['top', 'ou'], sn: 'dc=epims dc=biz', 
cn: 'epims' ]

does not make sense, because sn is an attribute type reprsesenting the 
surname of a person.

Hope this helps,
