I like to know whether it is possible to create our own schema and add our own attributes and objectclass for that or not?
If it is possible send me an example file so that i would be very thankfull to you.
Since am trying to create my own schema and try to add attributes in that.But when i try to  restart the ldap service i got the below error.
Checking configuration files for slapd:  /etc/openldap/schema/att.schema: line 3: AttributeType SYNTAX or SUPerior required: ""
slaptest: bad configuration file!
please help me with this issue.

Why are you making your life difficult? Just add entries like this:

dn: cn=Saju Kuttan,ou=solution,dc=test,dc=com
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
cn: Saju Kuttan
sn: Kuttan
givenName: Saju
description: Saju Kuttan in the Oracle team
telephoneNumber: 9891950975
mail: csaju@hcl.in

There doesn't seem to be an attribute for the Nick Name field in Outlook, see:
