Re: Installing a server on Solaris 2.9
At http://www.bolthole.com/solaris/LDAP.html we can read the following.
You then need to create the "solaris.schema" file, with the following
contents at minimum:
attributetype ( 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206 NAME 'nisDomain'
DESC 'NIS domain'
SYNTAX 220.127.116.11.4.1.1418.104.22.168.26 )
objectclass ( 22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199 NAME 'nisDomainObject' SUP top AUXILIARY
DESC 'Associates a NIS domain with a naming context'
MUST nisDomain )
Or you can download a fuller version, from
Hope it helps.
