RE: Newbie question / defining directory values

Yeah, I finally stumbled upon those.. so I got my includes set up in

include        /usr/local/etc/openldap/schema/core.schema
include        /usr/local/etc/openldap/schema/cosine.schema
include        /usr/local/etc/openldap/schema/inetorgperson.schema

I'm just still unsure how to use fields like l, st, postalCode, etc.  When I
run a basic ldapsearch from the command line now, I get the same as before..
basic values like cn, sn, uid, mail .. I don't know how to get the other
ones 'in' there I guess, now that I got the includes set up.  I again tried
putting them as an index in slapd.conf, but it didn't work, and I think
that's wrong to begin with..

That link you sent me btw, was 404.

Schema.  This has little/nothing to do with the contents of slapd.conf but
with the schema files you include

You shouldn't need to define anything custom for these.  "Standard"
schemas exist that include these.

See the schema section of ftp://kalamazoolinux.org/pub/pdf/ldapv3.pdf

You can't define custom schema without getting an OID from IANA.

Don't overlook the many standard schemas that already exist.
