Schema Replication

Hi list,

I was wondering if there is any way to perform automatic schema delivery to an LDAP network.

Basically weâve started a project where the stakeholders wish to synchronise a new database with LDAP, and the plan is to do it in small steps as the need for each part of the database arises.  This is mainly because the users can't define what they want in advance and the size of the database is too big to do in one hit.

The schema is going to be defined bit by bit, and deployment of the schema across the country is a fairly big task (~30 slaves) requiring serious outages so what Iâm after is a way to change the schema on-the-fly and have it replicate across the network, can OpenLDAP do this?  Is this a reasonable request?  Any better ideas?

If not, what would the scale of this kind of task be?  Iâve not touched OpenLDAP code before and I havenât written any serious C for a few years but if itâs not a huge task Iâd like to be able to contribute.  Comments welcome.
