Oracle Fusion Middleware Reference for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition

Searching the Schema Entry

Directory Server stores all directory server schema in the special cn=schema entry. This entry contains information on every object class and attribute defined for your directory server.

You can examine the contents of this entry as follows:

ldapsearch -h myServer -p 5201 -D cn=admin,cn=Administrators,cn=config
 -b "cn=schema" -s base "(objectclass=*)"

Note –

For strict compliance, the location of the schema subentry for a given entry is specified by the subschemaSubentry operational attribute. In this version of Directory Server, the value of this attribute is always cn=schema.
