Hi Krishna,

In the end the schema will be dynamicly updateable and will be store in the CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,...
naming context, just like windows server provide it.

But currently we don't handle seperate naming contexts for the domain, configuration and schema naming contexts.
And we don't look at the schema at all internally, so currently it's just as all other LDAP objects.
We only include a minimal subcontent from the schema windows server are using, this is just enough
to make the 'mmc'-client happy to work against a samba4, so only the client is currently using the schema.

look at source/setup/schema.ldif in the samba4 tree for what we currently using
