RE: modification of schema...
I posted something similar and the fellow that answered said I should not
that this is working -- here is the text of my message: The gist of it is
to use slapcat and slapadd to rebuild the directory. I am a newbie so I am
reentering what was told...
Won't I get duplicate data in my tree if I don't clean it out first ??
hope this helps someone

In some special cases, you can short cut. Depends
on exactly what was in use and was changed. But
the general rule is to use slapcat/slapadd to
rebuild the directory when changing in use schema.
