If one plays around with schema and an attribute type used in the RDN
of an entry is no longer present then this entry is no longer readable
because whenever a request is sent to slapd invalidDNSyntax is returned.
This leads to the situation that a client can't even explicitly delete
this offending entry anymore.
I'd vote for relaxing the schema-based DN checking in case of search,
rename (only old DN), modify and delete requests a bit so that after a
schema change the data can be corrected with normal client tools without
Any thoughts on this?
