It should be clear from the other replies here that such a goal is the wrong approach.

You should simply update your schema whenever you make changes to your templates. With OpenLDAP 2.3 you can add new schema elements on the fly. With OpenLDAP 2.4 you can add/delete/modify schema at will.

Thanks Howard. I have also sent a mail to Symas sales for licensing
price info for CDS packages for Windows.

One follow up question - is there a way to turn off schema checking in
OpenLDAP 2.3? Is it possible in CDS distributed by Symas?

No. Schema is an integral part of the LDAPv3 specification; schema checking cannot be disabled. Why do you want to turn it off?
