I've found a few how-tos, but they're based on old versions of both libraries (and contain references for files that seem to have been removed from OpenAM/OpenSSO) - for example:

I've tried importing the old version of am_remote_opends_schema.ldif, but I get a fairly verbose error:

ldap_modify: Invalid syntax (21)
 additional info: An error occurred while attempting to decode the object class "( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.2.181 NAME 'iplanet-am-managed-filtered-group' DESC 'Managed Filter Group OC' SUP iplanet-am-managed-group X-ORIGIN 'OpenSSO' )":  The definition for objectclass 2.16.840.1.113730.3.2.181 is invalid because it has an objectclass type of STRUCTURAL but this is incompatible with the objectclass type AUXILIARY for the superior class iplanet-am-managed-group

Should I roll back to the versions of OpenAM and OpenDJ to the older versions of OpenSSO and OpenDS referenced in these how-tos? That seems like a not-so-pleasing approach, but if it would do the trick...

OpenAM delivers the necessary files for OpenDJ (or OpenDS) but you can find them as well in OpenAM source repository :

The documentation from OpenSSO still applies to OpenAM, just s/opensso/openam/ likewise between OpenDJ and OpenDS. Doc:

I hope this helps. Ludo

thanks again for the help! I figured they must be somewhere, but I wasn't sure where to look. I'll give it a shot! – Michael Hellein Oct 29 '10 at 19:28
