Both .sch and .ldif files are provided for extending the schema to comply with rfc2307. The files are:

The rfc2307-nis.sch file is missing the class definition for nisMap.


Use the .ldif files to extend the schema for NIS. If the schema has already been extended using the .sch files you can still run the .ldif files to extend the schema. If you do need to run the .ldif files after the .sch files be sure to uncheck the "Exit on error" option so the .ldif file will continue to try executing even if it encounters an error. This is necessary because most of the schema will alreay exist and thus report an error.

Once the .ldif files have been applied you can verify that the nisMap class has been created by looking at the schema base class definitions in iMonitor and verifying that nisMap exists.
The .sch and .ldif files have been corrected in eDirectory 8.8.3 and later.
