ISAM Appliance: Changing schema of local LDAP

  • 1.  ISAM Appliance: Changing schema of local LDAP

    Posted Tue June 23, 2020 11:10 AM
    Hi all,

    I'm trying to add some Attributes and Object Classes to the local LDAP. It looks that I'm not able connecting to cn=config. At least adding an attribute or objectclass ends up in an error which I can't interpret. The ISAM LDAP log shows some funny stuff, which I can't find the error. Does anybody know how to change the schema?

    374 5ef21a88 <<< dnPrettyNormal: <cn=schema,cn=config>, <cn=schema,cn=config>

    Hi Jens,

    You can't modify the schema of the built-in LDAP of ISAM. If you need this flexibility you'd have to deploy an external LDAP (such as the IBM Directory Server that is bundled with ISAM Virtual Edition)

    Hi John,

    thanks for confirming. I've switched to federate the LDAP where the users and groups are located.
