Think about your schema carefully. Make sure to clearly investigate what your LDAP clients need.

What's so difficult with it?

It's not rocket science. You just have to sit down and do some homework. This can be easy or sometimes it's a real pain.

AFAIK, IBM has their own OIDs, that cannot intersect with any others.

1. I vaguely remember conflicting attribute names used with different IBM-related OIDs. Not sure whether it was Domino/LDAP or IBM Directory Server though.

2. It's also a question of data quality. Sometimes directories contain wrong data (syntax or semantics). Since I don't know your data you have to investigate this carefully in the light of what your LDAP clients expect to be stored in various attributes.

Ciao, Michael.
