A.2 Extending the Third-Party Schema

To extend a third-party schema for a DSfW server:

  1. Export the third-party schema to an LDIF file, such as schema.ldif.

  2. Execute the following command to generate msschema.sch:

    /opt/novell/xad/share/dcinit/aggregateSchema.pl schema.ldif --ndsschema > msschema.sch

    IMPORTANT:You must review msschema.sch manually for any containment issues.

  3. Extend this schema to a DSfW server by executing the following command:

    /opt/novell/eDirectory/bin/ndssch admin-context -t tree-name msschema.sch

  4. Use ldapadd or ldapmodify to create schema elements in the schema partition.

NOTE:Update the DNs of the schema elements in the LDIF file as necessary.
