Re: schema checking cannot be disabled

'schemacheck off'
if your slapd.conf?  I'm not sure if this is still around, but it's
mentioned in some mailing list archives.  schemachecking is an option
for syncrepl, but I don't think it will help you.

Also- you might be able to hack the schema file and make it look like
the redhat/osx server.

Good luck,
