Schema is modified to add an attribute definition using ldapmodify and ldif file.
ldif file for schema definition is missing the syntax definition for the attribute.

dn: cn=schema
changetype: modify
add: attributetypes
attributetypes: (OID number
NAME 'attr-name'
DESC 'attribute description'

This issue has been reported to development.

Fix: Add a valid syntax value

dn: cn=schema
changetype: modify
add: attributetypes
attributetypes: (
NAME 'attr-name'
DESC 'attribute description'
SUP dn

Fix: Use iManager to add attribute to schema. The iManager plugin walks through all the requirements for schema changes.
