    • Confirm that cn=schema is visible to the OVD admin:
      ldapsearch -D "cn=ovdadmin" -w "" -b "cn=schema" -s base "objectclass=*"

    • Click "Add DN" and add "cn=ovdadmin". Alternately, click "Add IP" and enter the ip address of the system where the ldapsearch is performed. This will restrict who has access to the adapter in the next step.
    • Retry the ldapsearch to confirm that the schema is no longer visible:
      ldapsearch -D "cn=ovdadmin" -w "" -b "cn=schema" -s base "objectclass=*"
      search: 2
      result: 32 No such object
      text: LDAP Error 32 : No Such Object
