The openLDAP I run uses the internal configuration and for that I need to insert the schema from an LDIF file. powerDNS is only installed with the dnsdomain2.schema which cannot be used directly. Is the dnsdomain2.ldif file somewhere available? I think that there are more people who need that file since this is the way that openLDAP is going to be configured. I already searched this maillist but could not find a question/reply and the internet did not help too.

Hi Marco,

Before you march too far down this path you may want to heed this note in the

As of PowerDNS Authoritative Server 3.0, the LDAP backend is unmaintained.
While care will be taken that this backend still compiles, this backend is
known to have problems in version 3.0 and beyond! Please contact
powerdns.support at netherlabs.nl or visit www.powerdns.com to rectify this
