  • These are the parameters to ldapsearch (from ldap-utils in Ubuntu), for searching for the record for Joe Blogg's user. sAMAccountName is the LDAP field that ActiveDirectory uses to store the user name. 'DOMAIN\Joe.Bloggs' where "DOMAIN" is the the active directory domain. Othewise you could use "CN=Joe.Bloggs,DC=example,DC=com" instead of "DOMAIN\Joe.Bloggs" Show Sample Output


    10
    ldapsearch -LLL -H ldap://activedirectory.example.com:389 -b 'dc=example,dc=com' -D 'DOMAIN\Joe.Bloggs' -w 'p@ssw0rd' '(sAMAccountName=joe.bloggs)'

  • getent allows to get the contents of several databases in their native file format even if they are not actually in /etc. For example, if you are using a LDAP or a DB to authenticate your users, you won't find their info by catting /etc/passwd, but "getent passwd" will concatenate /etc/passwd to the LDAP/DB. Show Sample Output

  • Simple way to backup your LDAP entries: put this line on your crontab. The -n switch identifies the dbnum you want to backup (alternatively you can use -b suffix. Check man slapcat for your personal switches)

    slapcat -n 1 > /backup/`date "+%Y%m%d"`.ldif
