Invalid DN after schema change


If one plays around with schema and an attribute type used in the RDN
of an entry is no longer present then this entry is no longer readable
because whenever a request is sent to slapd invalidDNSyntax is returned.
This leads to the situation that a client can't even explicitly delete
this offending entry anymore.

I'd vote for relaxing the schema-based DN checking in case of search,
rename (only old DN), modify and delete requests a bit so that after a
schema change the data can be corrected with normal client tools without
server down-time.

Any thoughts on this?

Ciao, Michael.
