OpenLDAP 1.x uses U-Mich LDIF.  This is described by ldif(5)
manual page.


You might also review the ldapadd(1) man page.  You should, in
general, use ldapadd(1) to add new entries to your directory.
ldif2ldbm(8) is designed to be used in conjunction with ldbmcat(8)
and doesn't do any schema checks.

Well, most of the attributed/objectclasses provided by OpenLDAP 1.x
are described by RFC.  These are contained in the doc/rfc directory.

However, in general, I suggest you browse one of the schema sites:

http://www.hklc.com/ldapschema/	(seems to be off line at the moment)

I've also started a schema section in the FAQ.  As always, you
are encouraged to add useful answers to the FAQ!
