Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Resources Reference

Modifying the ADAM Schema

The ADAM schema may have to be adjusted for use with Identity Manager. The resource schema and the identity template in an LDAP resource often contains a reference to a unique identifier (or account ID). ADAM differs from other LDAP implementation in that

The ADAM schema defines the attribute index configuration. Each attribute definition entry in the schema has a searchFlags attribute. For example, the definition for Uid is located at cn=Uid,cn=Schema under the schema context. The searchFlags attribute is a bitmask and values 1 (create index), 2 (create index in each container) and 64 (index to support efficient VLV queries) are related to indexing.

Refer to the Microsoft documentation on updating the schema in an ADAM instance.
