We are in process of migrating from SunOne to eDir. We are working on a
LDAP driver to migrate all our users to eDir.
Now there are several attributes that a user in Sun LDAP has but there
are no corresponsing attributes in the User class of Novell LDAP.

I have two queries:
1. To add new custom attributes to User class in Novell, should we go
by creating an aux class? I tried doing this (created an aux class and
extended schema for Users by adding this aux class. But when I create
new users through iManager the attributes of aux class are not visible!!
What is the correct process to do this?)

2. Are there some restrictions imposed on SunOne attributes like
'nsRoleDN'? I added this attribute in my LDAP Driver filter and schema
mapping, but it doesn't get reflected in the migrated user. From the
DSTrace logs it looks like there is some rule to remove this attribute
during migration
