So I’ve been getting back into the long-term project I’m working on at work, namely setting up an LDAP server to replace our NIS system. And of course I found that there’s some objects and attributes that I’d like to associate with entries in the directory, so I’m writing a schema to cover those things. And I quickly found that there isn’t quite as much documentation as I’d like to see. Granted, the one book that I have (“Understanding and Deploying LDAP Directory Services (2nd Edition)“) covers a *lot* of the information that one needs to know before setting up a LDAP directory, but it does lack a little bit in the information for creating your own schemas. Oh well, nothing like the tried and true trial-and-error method :>
