Description Ralf Herrmann 2005-09-01 02:47:27 UTC
The Problem:

When trying to add the file '/samba-3.0.20/examples/LDAP/samba-nds.schema'
to our Novell eDirectory Server (Ver 8.6 or newer), it issues a 'syntax error'
when trying to add the attributetpye 'sambaMungedDial'.

The error did not happen, when including the samba3.schema into openLDAP's
slapd.conf on a local LDAP server.

Possible Cause:

The schema file contains an empty description field for the attributetype
'sambaMungedDial', i.e. ".... DESC '' ...."
Seems eDirectory doesn't like the doubled single quote.

This worked for me:

Added a description string, i.e. ".... DESC 'some description' ....".
Now eDirectory accepts the schema definitions.


Bye, Ralf
