I would suggest instead adding a new aux class/attribute rather than change a built-in attribute.

Add an aux attribute with larger range.
Change the ldap to internal attribute mapping so that the new attribute is
visible to ldap as "initials"

Apart from Alex recommendation, which I strongly agree with, you can change
attribute flags and syntax via LDIF imports. This is explained in
http://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=10084796 but be aware that changing
schema *can* result in data loss!
Editing OIDs or removing the "Single_valued" flag off an attribute retains
existing attribute values in Edirectory (adding that flag is not allowed for
obvious reasons), while changing the syntax via LDIF succeeds but DELETES all
existing values of that attribute off all objects using it without further
notice. Be sure to test extensively before even thinking about this in
production!

I remember that I tried to change the size limit for Full Name once but without luck. My experience is that the only things you
can change is public read, sync immediate, single value to multi value and case ignore string to case exact string and vice verse.
Perhaps there are some other flags that can be changed (like write managed and both managed for DN) but I haven't tried that.

Best regards,
Tobias

Did that a while ago and all existing data in the attribute got deleted. The
syntax change itself succeeded, though. Be sure to take a backup...
