I am trying to import the sendmail.schema file from
sendmail.org. The problem is that it contains a matching rule called
caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch which OID doesn't support. There is a
caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch rule. I don't know if the IA5 part is important
to sendmail.

Oracle's response is "you can't add it and any attempts to add it are
You can add new object classes and objects by modifying subSchemaSubentry.
You cannot, however, add new matching rules and syntaxes beyond those
already supported by Oracle Internet Directory. "

You cannot add caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch, nor can you modify existing
Matching Rules. Attempting to add or modify existing Matching Rules is not

I think you're looking for RFC2307. I can't find the doc at Sun, but there

You may need to rework the LDIFs to get it imported into OID.

As a second option, you may be able to use SunOne (or OpenLDAP) *with* OID.

I'm trying to setup the sendmail feature ldap_routing using
Oracle Internet Directory (OID)for the LDAP server.

There is a matching rule in the sendmail schema called
caseExactIA5SubstringsMatch not doesn't exist in OID.

Has anyone found a way to resolve this problem?

I opened a tar with Oracle and was basically told 'to bad, use openldap'.
Matching rules are part of the basic Oracle OID schema and it is not
possible to add new or modify existing matching rules that are part of the
schema. If you want to use sendmail with LDAP you will need to use
something like openldap that does support the required matching rules you need.
The caseExactIA5SubstringsMatch matching rule has not been coded into the
OID schema up to this point because there has not been a requirement for it.
You can create an enhancement request to have this added into OID by
accessing http://ers.oracle.com.
