depends on the schema you are updating.

Let's say you are updating cn=other, and that you are adding an 
ObjectClass. You have to add the ObjectClass ldif file in :


If this ou=objectclasses directory does not exist, create it.

The ObjectClass must be a ldif file which name is m-oid=<your oid>.ldif

You can create this ldif file using Apache directory studio.

You also have to restart the server.

Note that you can also inject your new ObjectClass into the server using the same LDIF file,
it will be available directly.
