Normally there is no need to set the createTimestamp and
modifyTimestamp manually. They are automatically set by the
OperationalAttributesInterceptor in the interceptor chain (I assume
you use the DirectoryService interface to modify your entries).

Not sure if that's your problem, but operational attributes are not
returned by default. The client must request them explicitely by using
the attribute name or '+' to request all operational attributes.

Kind Regards,
