Subject Re: Custom Schemas and Partitions
Date Fri, 01 Jul 2011 15:53:41 GMT
I was hoping an LDAP import could create these partitions, however when I run the import it
complains about not being to find the partition. Is there a way to do an import
where it creates the structure it needs?

The wizard for creating a context is interesting. However when I got to the 3 step, picking
the objects, I noticed the ones from the custom schema I had created when I loaded my schema
file where not in there. How can I make these available?

I gave them the suffix listed in the info above. But when I connect to my server the partitions
are not listed? Only shows schema and system.

This is normal. You only defined the suffix of each partition in the configuration, but the
entry itself is still kind of "empty" (it's just a DN ATM).
You need to create for each partition its "context entry" either via an LDIF import or via
Studio using this guide:

In the schema browser I was able to load these objects, but they don't seem to be available
to the server I am trying to load the LDIF on?

What is the format of your schema file ? Has it been loaded in ApacheDS ?
Could you describe a little more precisely your steps to insert the schema within ApacheDS?
