Subject Re: Adding universal attributes
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2011 15:08:33 GMT
I am still having trouble even creating attributes.

I go into schema editor, and I create a new schema called uuid-schema.
I add an attribute called uuid with my desired properties. I then
create an auxiliary objectclass called uuid-class. The attributes are
optional uuid. I think export this as apacheds file. Then I go back to
my LDAP browser and import LDIF and get the file.

It successfully adds the schema to the ou=schema section in LDAP but I
cannot view either the object class nor the attribute in the schema

Am I doing something wrong? How can I start using this new attribute
when I can't find it anywhere?

Thanks in advance,
