According to the below links eDirectory users are supposed to extend the schema prior to installing their first eDirectory 8.8 SP7 into the tree.

Since we already have in our tree an OES 11 SP1 (eDirectory 8.8 SP7 patch2 ) that was later patched to eDirectory 8.8 SP7 patch 3 we opened a SR with tech support to find out if I need to extend the schema but the response I received was that there is no need to run the schema update because" There haven't been any major changes in schema for a while."

I didn't post this question in the eDirectory forums because tech support also told me that if I use the update channel to patch our OES servers we won't have any troubles with the schema in our environment but in the patch channel we see the " April 2013 OES11SP1 Scheduled Maintenance for eDirectory 8.8 SP7 Patch 3 " but not the "" eDirectory 8.8 SP7 Patch 3 Schema Files".

As I understand when we installed the first OES 11 SP1 server into our tree the OES11 SP1 installer extended the schema for eDirectory 8.8 SP7 patch 2 but the new schema update is for eDirectory 8.8 SP7 patch 3. Do I need to manually run the eDirectory 8.8 SP7 patch 3 schema update or the schema was automatically extended when I upgraded our OES 11 SP1 server to eDirectory 8.8 SP7 patch 3 ?
