Most likely, your database dictionary doesn't match your dictionary file.
If an attribute doesn't match, this will cause the parse error. For
example, you could have an dictionary with User-Service-Type, while
the database has User-Service.

DEFAULT is only supported in the users file. You have to enter each user
in the database, or run in both mode.
