I talked them into using openldap as the backend and was hoping I might be able to get a few questions answered before I dive in. I do have some experience with the openldap sdk but I am a bit confused about what I can expect from slapd and what I need to handle in buisness logic. Here goes ...
>1) Does slapd and ldapsdk allow a client to query/modify the schema? 
>2) Is there some sort of self-hosting schema ( instead of using the schema files in the schema directory ) or seperate package that allows openldap to self host a subschema? This would make my job a whole lot easier ;)
>3) Is there a way to limit an attribute that will reference an objects dn to only a specific class type? ( attribute x can only point to a object's dn if object x has an objectClass = y attribute ) If so, how do you set these constraints?
>Umm, I think thats it for now. Thanks in advance.
