13.1 Adding Missing Schema

In eDirectory 8.8, iManager provides you with options for adding missing schema to a server's schema. This process involves comparing a source and a destination. If there is additional schema in the source schema, this is added to the destination schema. The source can be either a file or an LDAP server, and the destination should be an LDAP server.

Through the ICE wizard in iManager, you can add the missing schema using the following options:

13.1.1 Add Schema from a File

ICE can compare the schema in the source and destination. The source is a file or LDAP Server, and the destination is an LDAP server. The source schema file can be in either the LDIF or SCH format.

Figure 13-1 Compare and Add the Schema from a File

If you want to only compare the schema and not add the additional schema to the destination server, select the Do Not Add but Compare option. In this case, the additional schema is not added to the destination server but the differences between the schema are available to you as a link at the end of the operation.

13.1.2 Add Schema from a Server

The source and destination are LDAP servers.

If you want to only compare the schema and not add the additional schema to the destination server, select the Do Not Add but Compare option. In this case, the additional schema is not added to the destination server, but the differences between the schema are available to you as a link at the end of the operation.
