Thumbs up How can I manually query a ldap server from terminal?

How can I manually query a ldap server from terminal? What commands are involved?


I'm trying to find: John Doe on the database.


PS: If it helps, I'm running kernel 2.4.22 on RedHat 9.0.

Here are some One-liners I've found:

ldapsearch syntax
ldapsearch -h mainldap -b ',c=us' cn="*"

ldapmodify syntax
ldapmodify -h masterldap -D 'cn=Directory Manager,,c=US' -r -f /tmp/user.ldif -w

ldapadd syntax
ldapadd -f user.ldif -D 'cn=Directory Manager,,c=US' -w "password"

ldapdelete syntax
ldapdelete -f user.ldif -D "cn=Directory Manager,,c=US" -w "password"

man ldapsearch
