Section Number and Name: 
8.1.1  Default Schema Files

Describe the issue: 

The paragraph in section 8.1.1 says that the schema files can be placed in /usr/lib64/dirsrv/slapd-instance/schema, however on a fresh RHDS 10 install here at a customer site this directory does not exist.  However /etc/dirsrv/slapd-instance/schema does and does contain LDAP schema files.

Suggestions for improvement: 
Point to /etc/dirsrv/slapd-instance/schema as opposed to /usr/lib64/dirsrv/slapd-instance/schema

Comment 5 Petr Bokoc 2016-03-11 08:46:04 EST
Alright, I fixed all instances in chapter 8 where the book was referring to /usr/lib64/dirsrv/slapd-instance/schema as the default instance schema directory.

Preview at:

However, "/etc/dirsrv/slapd-instance" (one level above) appears a whole bunch of times in the book in other places and in slightly different context. For example, the book refers to it as a directory where some scripts are installed, e.g. "8.7.1. Reloading Schema Using schema-reload.pl" or "⁠9.3.1. Running the db2index.pl Script".

I'm not sure if that should be changed as well - I don't know if the whole default RHDS install path changed or if it's only specifically the default schema directory. I'll get a test instance running later and check everything. Moving to MODIFIED for now.
Comment 6 Petr Bokoc 2016-04-07 10:05:08 EDT
Right, I get it now. /usr/lib64/dirsrv/slapd-instance contains scripts, and schema configs are indeed in /etc/dirsrv/slapd-instance/schema. I'll need to go through all instances of "/usr/lib64/dirsrv" in all DS10 books and check what each one refers to.
Comment 7 Petr Bokoc 2016-05-17 07:42:45 EDT
Every occurence of these two directories in all RHDS10 books should be fine now.

The updated documentation for Directory Server 10.1 is now available on the Customer Portal.
