OK, I fixed that.

Now I see:

#!ERROR [LDAP: error code 53 - UNWILLING_TO_PERFORM: failed for     Add Request : ClientEntry
    dn: m-oid=, ou=attributeTypes, cn=devLdapSchema, ou=schema  
  objectclass: metaAttributeType     objectclass: metaTop     objectclass: top     m-oid:     m-descridevon: unique identifier allowing substring searches
    m-substr: caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch     m-syntax:     m-name:

m-oid=, ou=attributeTypes, cn=devLdapSchema, ou=schema, as the associated
schema (devldapschema) is not loaded]

If I am reading this right there is another ldap schema here that I need?

I guess it's a problem with the name of your custom schema which contains a space, which when
it is imported in the server causes an issue with path name containing a space on Windows.

My guess would be to try to change the name to something without spaces.
