Replication has its own
pointy edges as well along with TLS; I've spent hours chasing obscure TLS
issues due to O/S dependent behaviors.
Regarding schemas -- it's a straightforward perl 1-liner to translate from
.schema to .ldif format. Then import and edit via ldapmodify as needed.
Hope this helps,
I've seen the guides similar to this one here:
which suggest hacking together a temporary slapd.conf file containing just
the include directives, run slaptest, and then hack the output so that it
can be loaded into cn=config using ldapadd.
Given that this is a quite a common task, is there no way of generating
the LDIF directly to be loaded into the directory, e.g.
slaptest -s /etc/ldap/schema/myschema.__
schema [ -n <schemanum> ] -l
Or then again, is this functionality already there but I just haven't
managed to find it yet? I'd be grateful if someone could point me in the
right direction and/or give me some hints as to the best way to manage
schemas in the new regime.
