These command changes were made in the Solaris Express 12/03 release.
Several LDAP commands are updated to include full SSL support and extended support for SASL. The modifications also provide support for managing smart referrals, using virtual list views (VLVs), and establishing stronger authentication when binding to the LDAP server.
This upgrade aligns the Solaris LDAP command functionality with Sun's LDAP directory server commands. All Solaris functionality is preserved for backward compatibility. The updated commands are ldapdelete, ldapmodify, ldapadd, ldapsearch, and ldapmodrdn.
Several changes have been made to the LDAP commands. Those changes include the following:
The -M authentication option is obsolete. This option has been superseded by the stronger -o option. The -M option is now used for managing smart referrals.
Search results are now displayed in LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF) by default. Use the -r option to display results in the old format, for backward compatibility.
