I keep receiving a, Add error on line 2: Referral
The server side error is: A referral was returned from the server.",

when I try and import users using CSVDE -i -f c:\mannusers.csv -j c:\

The log file returns:

Connecting to "(null)"
Logging in as current user using SSPI
Importing directory from file "c:\mannusers.csv"
Loading entries
2: CN=Valerie Pigowsky,OU=Mannkraft Users,DC=mannkraftUSA,DC=com
Attribute 0) objectClass: user
Attribute 1) sn: Pigowsky
Attribute 2) givenName: Valerie
Attribute 3) sAMAccountName: vpigowsky

Add error on line 2: Referral
The server side error is "A referral was returned from the server."
0 entries modified successfully.
An error has occurred in the program

I cannot pinpoint where the issue relies at.

Thanks for any support

Make sure the DN is correct, and then try again

How should the DN look and how do I know if it's correct inside the csv file?

Thanks.
