I have been asked for the same info. I have received assurances from cisco that Schema extensions are backward compatible. the avdirmonex2k.ldf file lists what schema extensions will take place. Its in DISK 1/schema/ldifscripts of unity 5.

the 5.0 schema is backward compatible with 4.x so there should be no issue

yes, think of it this way. the schema for 7 was based on 5, 5 based on 4 and so on. it has only keep adding fields for the new versions to use, previous versions don't even know about the new fields
