Yes, in OpenLDAP it can be done via back-config. In some other LDAP servers, 
it is possible to write directly to the dn listed in subschemaentry.

Note that exactly what you mean by "update" may also affect the answer. If you 
mean "modify a schema that already exists on the LDAP server", for OpenLDAP 
the answer is "no", schema writes only apply to adding new schemas (AFAIK).
