Do you have any suggestions? I have seen in some examples the use of ldif files and ldapadd

Ted, my guess is slapd.conf will continue to be supported for some time, i.e. many years.
 I haven’t tested fortress with the cn=config utility so can’t provide the instructions.
 There are many other settings besides schema that must be applied so my recommendation is
learn fortress/openldap with the .conf file first before attempting to use the online config
- if that is a requirement for you.

You can submit a ticket to fortress JIRA and we’ll try to work it in, although I can’t
make any promises of how soon.  If you are feeling adventurous, and want to try implementing
using the online config, we’ll do our best to support you, and incorporate what you learned
in the doc.  But again, learn using the conf file first, before making the leap to the other.
