Re: adding url attribute to Organization or Organizational unit

You might check that it's really "labeledURL" - there is another attribute
called "labeledURI" that works the same way.

On an interesting note about labeledURI, from a windows address book client,
the labeledURI site will show up on the last tab. Handy if you've got a
description page for your employees, etc.

Subject: adding url attribute to Organization or Organizational unit

I have been attempting to add a labeledURL attribute to the objectclass
organization by following the suggestion in the documentation to use an
auxilliary object class.

Ldapmodify returns an objectclass violation error.

It may be that I have misinterpreted the documentation.

It appears to say that you can add an auxilliary classobject to a previously
defined classobject. (this is unclear)

Is it however the case that an auxilliary classobject is simply a new
classobject with the appropriate attributes i.e. a local schema ?

If so, and the objectclasses that come with openldap have either too few or
too many or not the right attributes, how best can one stay on track -
having spent a number of nights reading the documentation, I do not know
how I might  ensure that if I use a non-standard schema I can maintain
compatibility so that when v2.0 is available I can move to adopt ldap v3.

Thanks for any advice.
