    I'm having a problem importing the AD schema into a new ADAM store.
    I exported the AD schema with:
    c:\windows\adam\ldifde -m
    -o whenCreated,whenChanged,objectGUID,uSNChanged,uSNcreated
    -r "(|(objectCategory=classSchema)(objectCategory=attributeSchema))"
    -f <filename>
    -d "cn=schema,cn=configuration,<domain root>"

    I try to import into the ADAM store with:
    c:\windows\adam\ldifde -i -k -s <servername>
    -f <filename>
    -c "CN=schema,cn=configuration,<domain root>"
    "CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,CN=<ADAM store GUID>"

    I get the following error:
    Connecting to "<servername>"
    Logging in as current user using SSPI
    Importing directory from file "<filename>"
    Loading entries.......
    Add error on line 147: No Such Attribute
    The server side error is: 0x57 The parameter is incorrect.
    The extended server error is:
    00000057: LdapErr: DSID-0C090AB7, comment: Error in attribute
    conversion operation, data 0, vece
    0 entries modified successfully.
    An error has occurred in the program
    No log files were written. In order to generate a log file, please
    specify the log file path via the -j option.

    I am logged into the domain as Adminstrator, who is a member of
    Enterprise Admins, which has Full Control on the AD. Server runs
    Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition.

    The import file has on lines 147-171:
    dn: CN=See-Also,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,<domain root>
    changetype: add
    adminDescription: See-Also
    adminDisplayName: See-Also
    cn: See-Also
    CN=See-Also,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,<domain root>
    instanceType: 4
    isSingleValued: FALSE
    lDAPDisplayName: seeAlso
    mAPIID: 33071
    name: See-Also
    CN=Attribute-Schema,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,<domain root>
    objectClass: top
    objectClass: attributeSchema
    oMObjectClass:: KwwCh3McAIVK
    oMSyntax: 127
    schemaIDGUID:: MXqWv+YN0BGihQCqADBJ4g==
    searchFlags: 0
    showInAdvancedViewOnly: TRUE
    systemFlags: 16
    systemOnly: FALSE

    What is wrong here?
    How can I import the AD schema into the ADAM store?

  2. Your status as an Enterprise Admin has no bearing on ADAM at all. ADAM doesn't
    care. You need admin roles inside of ADAM and nothing you have indicated
    indicates you do have that access. However, it would appear you have the access
    as I assume the import would have failed sooner.

    As for the place where it did fail, is every attribute defined for that class
    already defined in your ADAM Instance? For instance, MAPIID isn't defined in any
    of my ADAM instances...

  3. Joe's correct -- you should exclude mAPIID, which is not a part of ADAM
    schema. Everything else seems ok.
