Default enabling posixGroup for a group (error : attribute "uidNumber" not allowed)

Are you adding the group through console or through command line ?

Have you tried adding through console too ?

if you are adding through ldif file, check if you added uidNumber attribute, as this attribute is not part of PosixGroup objectclass.

the ldif file should have below entries.

dn: cn=admin,ou=systemgroups,dc=example,dc=com
gidNumber: 1054
objectClass: top
objectClass: groupofuniquenames
objectClass: posixgroup
cn: admin
