Having started to look at the changes required to migrate from a
slapd.conf setup to a cn=config setup, one of things I'm struggling with
is how to load new LDAP schemas into cn=config.
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.
