Manually Updating Schema Files

If for any reason, you have decided not to run the Directory Preparation Tool generated script, the following directions allow you to manually update your schema files for Sun Java System Directory Server.

Note –

If you update your LDAP directory schema manually and then later upgrade Calendar Server, you must manually update the LDAP server schema again. Calendar Server cannot automatically update the schema after the it has previously been updated manually.

ProcedureTo Update Your LDAP Directory Manually

  1. Install Calendar Server 6.3.

  2. Stop Calendar Server, if it is running.

  3. Stop Directory Server, if it is running.

  4. Copy the 60iplanet-calendar.ldif file to the following directory on the machine where your directory server is running:


    where dir-svr-base is the Directory Server installation directory and hostname identifies the machine.

  5. If you want to index attributes, as the configuration program does, do it at this point.

    For a list of the attributes the configuration program indexes, see Attribute Indexes Created by the Directory Preparation Tool.

  6. Restart the Directory Server.

    If you receive object identifier (OID) errors, see Resolving Conflicting Calendar Server OID's in the LDAP Schema.
