Listing All User Entry Attributes

To list specific information such as a user's passwd entry, use getent as follows:

# getent passwd user1
user1::30641:10:Joe Q. User:/home/user1:/bin/csh

If you want to list all attributes, use ldaplist with the -l option.

# ldaplist -l passwd user1dn: uid=user1,ou=People,dc=west,dc=example,dc=com
        uid: user1
        cn: user1
        uidNumber: 30641
        gidNumber: 10
        gecos: Joe Q. User
        homeDirectory: /home/user1
        loginShell: /bin/csh
        objectClass: top
        objectClass: shadowAccount
