RE: Building OpenLDAP with MSVC 6
Thanks for your response. Yes we are updating our side to add new schema elements on the fly (openldap 2.3). Openldap 2.4 seems to be more flexible - but I guess it's not stable release yet.

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