The minimal schema required by OpenLDAP is not documented except
by the actual source code.

You should not edit the distributed slapd.at.conf nor slapd.oc.conf
nor cause them not to be included by your slapd.conf file.

You should define your what additional schema items you desire
in separate files and include these after inclusion of distribution
slapd.at.conf/slapd.oc.conf files.

# example slapd.conf fragment

# include OpenLDAP schema
include slapd.at.conf
include slapd.oc.conf

# include local schema
include local.at.conf
include local.oc.conf

Besides slapd.conf(5), the U-Mich guide, and the archives of this
list, you might check out our FAQ.  It has a section with a number
of slapd schema answers.
