We use openldap as a back end for many things. One of the thing, it

Outlook 2003 clients stopped working:
So I followed the instructions here to enable server side sorting:
I was able to add the ordering to the sn attribute.
attributetype ( 126.96.36.199 NAME ( 'sn' 'surname' )
DESC 'RFC2256: last (family) name(s) for which the entity is known by'
SUP name )
Unfortunately outlook is looking at the cn attribute
@400000004b21316a0e808064 sssvlv: no ordering rule specified and no
default ordering rule for attribute cn
@400000004b21316a0e808834 <= get_ctrls: n=1 rc=18 err="serverSort
control: No ordering rule"
That unfortunately is not defined in the core.schema
# system schema
#attributetype ( 188.8.131.52 NAME ( 'cn' 'commonName' )
# DESC 'RFC2256: common name(s) for which the entity is known by'
# SUP name )
I am sure there is a good reason why cn does not have an ordering, but
I am guessing it used to have this in the distant past since this
previously worked. So how would I go about changing the system schema?
Or does anyone have a better way to deal with this.
(I know I could play with client registry (kb) article but I would
like to handle this server side)
Thank you for your insights.
To follow up, does anyone know why CN does not have any ordering rule?
Is their a way to add an ordering rule?
