I just want to understand what information is in the ldap directory.

What does the schema(s) containg?

What did the classicupgrade create?

What gets added when I add a server?

A user?

Did any of my users get added via the classicupgrade?

I know better than to change things with something like phpldapadmin.  I 
have messed up enough things in the past with phpmysqladmin!  :)
