You should modify slapd.conf (if you're using OpenLDAP) to include
misc.schema in addition to whatever schemas you're already including. If
it's not OpenLDAP, you should include the appropriate configuration file
for the relevant DSA. You can see which schemas have which objectClasses
and attributes simply by grepping in the schema directory.
