Re: Non-numeric OIDs; iPlanet->openLDAP
I was afraid of that. So (just to clarify) LDAP_SCHEMA_ALLOW_XX
etc. have no effect?
No, it has an effect.
Is there any particular reason (if so) why they
remain in the codebase?Other programs that use libldap may not have the same stringent
requirements that slapd does.
What is the current state of play wrt the compile flags
LDAP_SCHEMA_ALLOW_ALL et al.? I see some contradictory
messages on the mailing list archives. slapd requires all schema elements to have numeric OIDs. It does allow
the use of alphanumeric macro names in certain places, but those names
must be resolvable to a numeric OID (see the "objectidentifier" ketword
I'm particularly interested in allowing non-numeric OIDs
in schema definitions -- not because I think it's a good
idea, but because I need to import a schema originally
created on an iPlanet server, which uses alphanumeric
names for OIDs rather than dotted-decimal numbers.
