I have a project to duplicate several custom schemas into Active Directory that reside on an LDAP server.  I has successfully completed this except for what I call creating an alias for an attribute.  Let's say there is an attribute called fld1, but it also needs to be referenced by fld1a.  Creating the attribute, fld1,  within AD is not the problem.  I need to create the alias, fld1a.  The following data is supplied to LDIFDE.exe to create the original attribute:

dn: CN=fld1,CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=fabikam,DC=com
changetype: add
objectClass: top
objectClass: attributeSchema
cn: fld1
lDAPDisplayName: fld1
adminDisplayName: fld1
adminDescription: Test Field
attributeID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.14923.1.1.1.1
attributeSyntax: 2.5.5.12
oMSyntax: 64
isSingleValued: TRUE
searchFlags: 1
showInAdvancedViewOnly: TRUE
systemOnly: FALSE

I just can't find how to edit this to create the alias.  Any ideas?

Creating the attribute, fld1,  within AD is not the problem.  - OK. Good.
I need to create the alias, fld1a.  - Does your system need to use the attribute fld anywhere else? Why don't you just call the attribute fld1a?

I can't say that I've seen aliases for attributes...if you need a unique name, then create that attribute with the name.
