You mean Domino/LDAP 8.x? Mainly it's just the LDAP interface to the
Notes address book.
Yes. I want to replicate the whole Domino/LDAP. It's not (yet) too big.

You can add those schema elements to your OpenLDAP installation. Not
everything makes sense though.
Ok, I'll look at it carefully.
Think about your schema carefully. Make sure to clearly investigate
what your LDAP clients need.
What's so difficult with it? AFAIK, IBM has their own OIDs, that cannot
intersect with any others.

What do you mean with LDAP schema discovery? I'd dive into the
subschema subentry of Domino/LDAP. It's accessible like that of any
other LDAPv3 server.
Yes, I mean that. I wanted to generate OpenLDAP schema automatically
using these subschema subentries. Do you think it's possible? Did you
see someone doing that before?

Nope, since Domino/LDAP cannot act as syncrepl provider.
I thought so.

Yes. Depending on the size of the database you could query the
operational attributes. Cannot test myself since I don't have a Domino
server running here.
Great. But I still need to make schemas beforehand. Or I don't?
Thanks a lot.
