Re: ldap schema
Thank you that is good input.
Just to re-phrase you are implying I should change "objectClass: account" to "objectClass: inetorgperson"
Is this your suggestion?

The object class account will get you into trouble, as it is not what
you probably think it should be :-)
An account is not a person!
You are better off with object classes of the person chain,
inetorgperson would be a good choice.
