The list of attributes that an entry can contain is available in the
combinaison of ObjectClasses this entry is subject to. Two things though :
- ObjectClasses can inherit from some other ObjectClasses, and those
parent ObjectClasses may not be present in teh Entry. You will have to
know about them on the client side
- if one of the ObjectClass is extensibleObject, then the entry may
contain *any* attribute, even some that the server does not support.

In any case, your client application must have some knowledge about your
LDAP server schema.

Otherwise, any reason you need to know which are the missing attributes ?
