1. The schema on oud was modified using ldapmodify.
.../ldapmodify -h $host -p $LDAP_PORT -D "${USER}" -w "${PWD}" -a <dn: cn=schema
changetype: modify

2. The schema changes were reflected in config/schema/99-users.ldif.

3. It is able to see the new attribute on the object and querying the "cn=schema" for the field returned success
but still we were getting the following exception while trying to insert an entry with the new attribute

4. this was fixed after we restarted the directory server.
