Apple LDAP attributes and classes

Is there a file or rpm that will install the Apple LDAP attributes and classes in OES 11? Or do I have to map them manually?

I need to get my Mac users migrated over soon and those do not exist in OES, at least as far as I can tell.

Any insight would be most appreciative.

There's no RPM as its not a case of copying files into directories and
instead extending the eDirectory schema.

There are a few different options I could suggest but first I'd like to
understand your requirements. What do you mean by "Mac users"? Do you mean
users of Macs or Mac user objects in an Apple Open Directory (on OS X
Server)?

My apologies for being ambiguous.

The Mac users do exist in eDirectory, however the schema objects do not.

So the obvious answer is Novell Kanaka for Mac. Have you considered that?
It would not require schema changes,

I have but Kanaka will not accommodate for the Mac users local home directories. These directories are local on a separate drive due to software considerations for our business. Kanaka, unfortunately, will not allow for local home directories (unless I have missed something in my testing of Kanaka).
