The Directory Server has a schema that applies constraints and validations to LDAP entries.
Thing of this like tables that have columns and you are attempting to add data to a column that does not exist.

In order to add additional attributes, you must modify the schema that controls the object classs that you are trying to add. To quote from the iPlanet documentation:

Required and Allowed Attributes

Every object class includes a number of required attributes and of allowed attributes. Required attributes include the attributes that must be present in entries using the object class. All entries require
the objectClass attribute, which defines the object classes assigned to the entry.

This resource should help.
