A Oracle Unified Directory Command Line Interface

Oracle Unified Directory includes a number of command-line utilities that are used to interact with the directory server and the proxy server. Utilities are also provided to prepare a server to be part of a multi-version topology using the replication gateway.

This appendix describes all of the commands that are provided with Oracle Unified Directory 11g Release 2 (11.1.2). Some of these commands are specific to a directory server instance and cannot be used to configure a proxy server. Similarly, a number of the commands are specific to the proxy and cannot be used to configure a directory server.

This appendix covers the following topics:

A.1 General Command-Line Usage Information

The following sections provide general information about command usage:

A.1.1 Summary of Server Commands and Their Use

The tables in this section provide a summary of the server commands and how they can be used. The tables use the following legend:

Remote

The command can be launched on a remote server

Offline

The command can be launched when the server is stopped

Online

The command connects to a running server instance

Administration Port Only

The command must use the administration connector to access the server (on port 4444 by default)

Note:

Not all the commands listed in the following tables are supported for a proxy server instance.

A.1.2 Using a Properties File With Server Commands

Certain command-line utilities can use a common properties file to provide default values for options such as the following:

  • The host name and port number of the server

  • Whether to use SSL or StartTLS to communicate with the server

  • The bind DN to use when connecting to the server

The following utilities can use a properties file:

  • backup

  • dsconfig

  • dsreplication

  • export-ldif

  • gicadm

  • import-ldif

  • split-ldif

  • ldapcompare

  • ldapdelete

  • ldapmodify

  • ldappasswordmodify

  • ldapsearch

  • manage-tasks

  • oud-setup

  • oud-proxy-setup

  • oud-replication-gateway-setup

  • restore

  • status

  • stop-ds

  • uninstall

The following mutually exclusive options are used with the command-line utilities to indicate whether a properties files is used:

--propertiesFilePath path

Specify the path to the file that contains default values for command-line options.

--noPropertiesFile

Indicates that the properties file is not used to obtain default values for command-line options.

A.1.2.1 Locating the Properties File

Utilities that use the common properties file have the following default behavior:

  • If the --noPropertiesFile option is specified, the command-line interface does not try to locate a properties file. Only options specified on the command line are evaluated.

  • If the --propertiesFilePath option is specified, property values are read from this file.

  • If neither --propertiesFilePath nor --noPropertiesFile is specified, the command-line interface attempts to find a properties file in the following locations:

    • USERDIRECTORY/.opends/tools.properties

    • INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/config/tools.properties

  • If no properties file is found in either of these locations, the default behavior is applied (only arguments specified on the command line are evaluated).

A.1.2.2 Order of Precedence of Options and Properties

If an option is provided on the command line, this option and its corresponding value are used by the command-line interface. In other words, options specified on the command line take precedence over the properties defined in the properties file.

The properties file has the standard JAVA properties file format (property-name=value). As such, the file supports variations on property names to enable them to be overridden according to the command that uses them. For example, the properties file might contain the following:

hostname=localhost
port=4444
bindDN=cn=Directory Manager
bindPasswordFile=/path/pwd-file
baseDN=dc=example,dc=com
searchScope=sub
sortOrder=givenName
virtualListView=0:2:1:0

If a command-line interface uses the port property, the command first tries to locate a toolname.port definition. If this is not defined, the command tries to locate a port definition. For example, the properties file might have several port options defined for different utilities:

port=4444
ldapsearch.port=1389
ldapcompare.port=1389
ldapmodify.port=1389
ldapdelete.port=1389

Note:

Do not use quotation marks around the values in the properties file (for example, port="4444").

A.2.2.9 Related Commands

Section A.2.4, "dsconfig"

A.2.3 ds2oud

The ds2oud command manages the migration from an Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition directory server instance to Oracle Unified Directory.

A.2.3.1 Synopsis

ds2oud [options]

A.2.3.2 Description

The ds2oud command enables you to manage the migration from an Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition directory server instance to Oracle Unified Directory. The ds2oud command first allows you to diagnose the targeted Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition directory server, and then performs the migration task. It is based on the premise that the existing Oracle Unified Directory instance is modified to be compatible with the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition directory server to be migrated. The ds2oud command runs in interactive mode, if you do not specify options. Interactive mode works much like a wizard, walking you through every aspect of the migration.

You can also run the ds2oud command in batch mode. In batch mode, a batch file that comprises dsconfig commands is generated. These commands are used to create an equivalent Oracle Unified Directory configuration. So, you can run ds2oud once, and create a single batch file that can be used to configure any number of Oracle Unified Directory instances.

You must ensure while running the ds2oud command that the Oracle Unified Directory instance (to which the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition instance is being migrated) is configured without any suffixes.

A.2.3.3 Options

The ds2oud command accepts the following options.

-d, --diagnose

Diagnoses the targeted Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition directory server.

-f, --ldifDBFile file

Diagnoses the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition directory server LDIF database file.

-u, --userSchemaFile file

Specifies the user schema to be taken into consideration. It applies to -f subcommand.

-a, --migrateAll

Propagates schema and configuration elements from Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition directory server to Oracle Unified Directory server.

-s, --migrateUserSchema

Propagates the User schema from Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition directory server to Oracle Unified Directory server.

You must migrate the schema before you migrate the configuration, otherwise the migration can produce unpredictable results.

-c, --migrateConfiguration

Propagates configuration elements from Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition directory server to Oracle Unified Directory server.

You must migrate the schema before you migrate the configuration, otherwise the migration can produce unpredictable results.

-w, --uniqueWorkflowElement

Use a unique workflow element for all the naming contexts to migrate. This applies to -c subcommand.

A.2.3.4 Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition LDAP Connection Options

-D, --odseeBindDN bindDN

DN to use to bind to the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server.

-j, --odseeBindPasswordFile filename

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition bind password file.

-h, --odseeHostname host

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server hostname. The default value is localhost.

-p, --odseePort port

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server port number. The default value is 389.

-Z, --odseeUseSSL

Establishes an Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition SSL-encrypted connection.

-P, --odseeTrustStorePath trustStorePath

Use the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition trust store certificate in the specified path. This option is not needed if -X is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-U, --odseeTrustStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition trust store. This option is only required if --odseeTrustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this).

-X, --odseeTrustAll

Trust all certificate that the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server presents. This option can be used for testing purposes, but for security reasons, a trust store should be used to determine whether the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition should accept the server certificate.

A.2.3.5 Oracle Unified Directory LDAP Connection Options

--oudBindDN bindDN

DN to use to bind to the Oracle Unified Directory server.

--oudBindPasswordFile filename

Oracle Unified Directory bind password file.

--oudHostname host

Oracle Unified Directory server hostname. The default value is localhost.

--oudPort port

Oracle Unified Directory server port number. The default value is 389.

--oudAdminPort port

Oracle Unified Directory server administration port. The default value is 444.

--oudUseSSL

Establishes an Oracle Unified Directory SSL-encrypted connection.

--oudTrustStorePath trustStorePath

Use the Oracle Unified Directory trust store certificate in the specified path.

--oudTrustStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the Oracle Unified Directory trust store. This option is only required if --oudTrustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this).

--oudTrustAll

Trust all certificate that the Oracle Unified Directory server presents. This option can be used for testing purposes, but for security reasons, a trust store should be used to determine whether the Oracle Unified Directory should accept the server certificate.

A.2.3.6 Command Input/Output Options

-n, --no-prompt

Use the non-interactive mode. If data in the command is missing, the user is not prompted and the tool fails.

-o, --outputFile filename

Redirects the output into the specified output file.

-F, --batchFilePath filename

This option specifies the name of the output file that contains a set of dsconfig commands to execute to migrate the configuration.

When you run ds2oud with this option, a batch file is generated that includes all of the dsconfig commands required to create the equivalent Oracle Unified Directory configuration. So, you can run ds2oud once, and create a single batch file that can be used to configure any number of Oracle Unified Directory instances.

--displayCommand

Display the equivalent non-interactive dsconfig commands (for the migration of Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition configuration parameters).

A.2.3.7 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Displays command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to stop or restart the directory server.

-V, --version

Displays the version information for the directory server.

A.2.3.8 Examples

The following examples show how to use the ds2oud command.

Example A-8 Viewing the Global Help Subcommands

The following command displays the available global Help subcommands:

$ ds2oud --help

Example A-9 Running ds2oud in Interactive Mode From the Command Line

The ds2oud command can be run in interactive mode, where you are prompted for migration options. To run ds2oud in interactive mode, type the following command:

$ ds2oud
What do you want to do ?

1)  Diagnose an ODSEE directory server instance
2)  Diagnose an ODSEE LDIF data file
3)  Migrate all ( user schema + configuration )
4)  Migrate the user schema
5)  Migrate global configuration parameters

c)  cancel

For each preceding action, you must first provide the connection options for the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server (for diagnosis) or both the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition and Oracle Unified Directory servers (for migration).

Example A-10 Running ds2oud for Diagnosing Data

The following command is run to diagnose the data present in the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition directory server:

$ ds2oud -f odseeDataFile.ldif -u 99user.ldif

*******************************************************************************
* Diagnose ODSEE LDIF data file :  odseeDataFile.ldif
*******************************************************************************
The data were validated successfully regarding the OUD schema

Example A-11 Migrating an Existing Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition Configuration to an Oracle Unified Directory Configuration

Use the following commands to migrate an existing Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition Configuration to a new Oracle Unified Directory Configuration

The following command migrates an existing Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition configuration and schema:

$ ds2oud --migrateAll -D "cn=directory manager"
-j /tmp/pwd -h hostname -p ldapPort  
--oudBindDN "cn=directory manager" --oudBindPasswordFile /tmp/pwd
--oudHostname hostname2 --oudPort ldapPort2 --oudAdminPort adminPort  -n

The following command provides the path to a batch file containing a set of dsconfig commands to be executed to create a new Oracle Unified Directory configuration:

$ ds2oud --migrateConfiguration --batchFilePath batchFile
-D "cn=directory manager" -j /tmp/pwd -h hostname 
-p ldapPort --oudBindDN "cn=directory manager"
--oudBindPasswordFile /tmp/pwd  --oudHostname hostname2

Use the bind DN to bind the server. This option is used when performing simple authentication and is not required if SASL authentication is to be used. The default value for this option is cn=Directory Manager.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-h, --hostname hostname

Contact the server on the specified hostname or IP address. If this option is not provided, a default of localhost is used.

-j, --bindPasswordFile filename

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the server.

-K, --keyStorePath path

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path.

-N, --certNickname nickname

Use the nickname of certificate for SSL client authentication.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the specified options for SASL authentication.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-p, --port port

Contact the server at the specified administration port. If this option is not provided, the administration port of the local configuration is used.

-P, --trustStorePath path

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used.

-U, --trustStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this).

-X, --trustAll

Trust all server SSL certificates that the server presents. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate. If the client and the server are running in the same instance, there is no certificate interaction.

--connectTimeout {timeout}

This is used to specify the maximum length of time (in milliseconds) that can be taken to establish a connection. Use 0 to specify no time out. The default value is 30000.

A.2.4.17 Command Input/Output Options

--commandFilePath path

Specify the full path to the file, where the equivalent non-interactive commands will be written when this command is run in interactive mode.

--displayCommand

Display the equivalent non-interactive option in the standard output when this command is run in interactive mode.

-F, --batchFilePath batchFilePath

Specifies the path to a file that contains a set of dsconfig commands to be executed. This option supports line splitting, backslash ('\'), quotes (") escaped quotes (\") inside a quoted string, and hash for comments ('#').

-n, --no-prompt

Use non-interactive mode. If some data in the command is missing, you are not prompted and the command will fail.

--noPropertiesFile

Indicate that the command will not use a properties file to get the default command-line options.

--sortMenuItems

Allows to sort the menu items if the interactive mode is used. The order is the user locale alphabetic order.

--propertiesFilePath path

Specify the path to the properties file that contains the default command-line options.

-Q, --quiet

Run in quiet mode. No output will be generated unless a significant error occurs during the process.

-s, --script-friendly

Run in "script friendly" mode. Display the output in a format that can be easily parsed by a script.

-v, --verbose

Run in verbose mode, displaying diagnostics on standard output.

A.2.4.18 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to stop or restart the server.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.2.4.20 Exit Codes

An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. An exit code of 1 or greater indicates that an error occurred during processing.

A.2.4.21 Using a Properties File

The server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the dsconfig command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. For more information, see Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands."

The following options can be stored in a properties file:

  • bindDN

  • bindPasswordFile

  • certNickname

  • hostname

  • keyStorePasswordFile

  • keyStorePath

  • port

  • saslOption

    SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

  • trustAll

  • trustStorePasswordFile

  • trustStorePath

  • useSSL

  • useStartTLS

Entries in the properties file have the following format:

toolname.propertyname=propertyvalue

For example:

dsconfig.trustAll=Yes

A.2.4.22 Location

  • UNIX and Linux: INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/bin/dsconfig

  • Windows: INSTANCE_DIR\OUD\bat\dsconfig.bat

A.2.5 dsjavaproperties

The dsjavaproperties command specifies the JVM version and Java arguments that are used by each server command.

A.2.5.1 Synopsis

dsjavaproperties [options]

A.2.5.2 Description

The dsjavaproperties command can be used to specify the JVM version and Java arguments that are used by each server command. The JVM and Java arguments for each command are specified in a properties file, located at INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/config/java.properties. The properties file is not used unless you run the dsjavaproperties command. If you edit the properties file, you must run dsjavaproperties again for the new settings to be taken into account.

dsjavaproperties can be used to specify (among other arguments) whether a command runs using the JVM in -server mode or -client mode. By default, all client applications run in -client mode, and all of the server utilities run in -server mode. Generally, -server mode provides higher throughput than -client mode, at the expense of slightly longer startup times.

For certain commands (import-ldif, export-ldif, backup, and restore) you can also specify different Java arguments (and a different JVM) depending on whether the command is run in online or offline mode.

If the value of the overwrite-env-java-home property is set to false in the java.properties file, the OPENDS_JAVA_HOME environment variable takes precedence over the arguments specified in the properties file. Similarly, if the value of the overwrite-env-java-args property is set to false in the java.properties file, the OPENDS_JAVA_ARGS environment variable takes precedence over the arguments specified in the properties file.

A.2.5.3 Options

The dsjavaproperties command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -Q) or their long form equivalent (for example, --quiet).

-Q, --quiet

Run in quiet mode. Quiet mode does not output progress information to standard output.

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to stop or restart the server.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.2.5.4 Example

The following example shows how to use the export—ldif command.

Example A-18 Modifying a Script

This example shows how to change the export-ldif script to use a maximum JVM heap size of 256 Mbytes when the command is run with the server online.

  1. Edit the INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/config/java.properties file and set the export-ldif.online arguments as follows:

    export-ldif.online.java-args=-client -Xms8m -Xmx256m
    
  2. Run the dsjavaproperties command for the change to take effect.

    $ dsjavaproperties
     The script files were successfully updated.  The Oracle Unified Directory 
     command-line utilities will use the java properties specified in the 
     properties file INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/config/java.properties
    

A.2.5.5 Exit Codes

An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. A nonzero exit code indicates that an error occurred during processing.

A.2.5.6 Location

  • UNIX and Linux: INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/bin/dsjavaproperties

  • Windows: INSTANCE_DIR\OUD\bat\dsjavaproperties.bat

A.2.6 dsreplication

The dsreplication command configures replication between directory servers so that the data of the servers is synchronized.

This command is not supported for the proxy.

A.2.6.1 Synopsis

dsreplication [subcommands] [options]

A.2.6.2 Description

The dsreplication command can be used to configure replication between directory servers so that the data of the servers is synchronized. First enable replication by using the enable subcommand and then initialize the contents of one directory server with the contents of another server by using the initialize subcommand.

The dsreplication command contacts the server over SSL using the administration connector (see Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server").

Like the dsconfig command, dsreplication can be run in interactive mode, which walks you through the replication setup process. To run dsreplication in interactive mode, type the command name with no parameters, as shown in the following example:

$ dsreplication
What do you want to do?

1)  Enable Replication
2)  Disable Replication
3)  Initialize Replication on one Server
4)  Initialize All Servers
5)  Pre External Initialization
6)  Post External Initialization
7)  Display Replication Status
8)  Purge Historical
9)  Set the trust flag of the Directory Server
10) Enable External Changelog
11) Disable External Changelog

c)  cancel

Enter choice: 1
...

To display the equivalent non-interactive command, use the --displayCommand or --commandFilePath option.

A.2.6.3 Server Subcommands

The following subcommands are used with the dsreplication command.

disable

Disable replication on the specified directory server for the specified base DN. This subcommand removes references to the specified server in the configuration of the servers with which this server is replicating data. Suboptions are as follows:

-D, --bindDN bindDN. The DN used to bind to the server on which replication will be disabled. This option must be used if no global administrator has been defined on the server or if you do not want to remove references in the other replicated servers. The password provided for the global administrator is used when this option is specified.

-a, --disableAll. Disable the replication configuration on the specified server. The contents of the server are no longer replicated and the replication server (change log and replication port) is disabled, if it is configured.

--disableReplicationServer. Disable the replication server. The replication port and change log are disabled on the specified server.

-h, --hostname host. Directory server host name or IP address.

-p, --port port. Directory server administration port number.

disable-changelog

Disables the external change log for a set of base DNs. If there is no data to replicate, then all the associated replication configuration is removed. For more information about external change log, see Section 26.5, "Using the External Change Log." Suboptions are as follows:

-h, --hostname host

Directory server host name or IP address.

-p, --port port

The Directory Server administration port number.

-D, --bindDN bindDN

The DN to bind with the server where you want to configure the external change log. The default value is cn=Directory Manager.

enable-changelog

Creates an external change log for a set of base DNs. The external change log feature allows you to retrieve the modifications performed under a specific base DN. For more information about external change log, see Section 26.5, "Using the External Change Log." Suboptions are as follows:

-h, --hostname host

Directory server host name or IP address.

-p, --port port

The Directory Server administration port number.

-D, --bindDN bindDN

The DN to bind with the server where you want to configure the external change log. The default value is cn=Directory Manager.

-r, --replicationPort port

The port required to configure the change log. You have to specify this option only if the changelog (or replication) is not previously configured in the server. The default value is 8989.

enable

Update the configuration of the directory servers to replicate data under the specified base DN. If one of the specified servers is already replicating the data under the base DN to other servers, executing this subcommand updates the configuration of all the servers. It is therefore sufficient to execute the subcommand once for each server that is added to the replication topology. Suboptions are as follows:

--bindDN2 bindDN. The DN used to bind to the second server whose contents will be replicated. If no bind DN is specified, the global administrator is used to bind.

--bindPasswordFile1 filename. The file containing the password used to bind to the first server whose contents will be replicated. If no bind DN was specified for the first server, the password of the global administrator is used to bind.

-D, --bindDN1 bindDN. The DN used to bind to the first server whose contents will be replicated. If no bind DN is specified, the global administrator is used to bind.

-F, --bindPasswordFile2 filename. The file containing the password used to bind to the second server whose contents will be replicated. If no bind DN was specified for the second server, the password of the global administrator is used to bind.

-h, --host1 host. Host name or IP address of the first server whose contents will be replicated.

--noReplicationServer1. Do not configure a replication port or change log on the first server. The first server will contain replicated data but will not contain a change log of modifications made to the replicated data. Note that each replicated topology must contain at least two servers with a change log to avoid a single point of failure.

--noReplicationServer2. Do not configure a replication port or change log on the second server. The second server will contain replicated data but will not contain a change log of modifications made to the replicated data. Note that each replicated topology must contain at least two servers with a change log to avoid a single point of failure.

--noSchemaReplication. Do not replicate the schema between the servers. Note that schema replication is enabled by default. Use this option if you do not want the schema to be synchronized between servers.

-h, --hostname host. Directory server host name or IP address.

-p, --port port. Directory server administration port number.

pre-external-initialization

Prepare a replication topology for initialization by using import-ldif or binary copy. This subcommand must be called before you initialize the contents of all directory servers in a topology by using import-ldif or binary copy. If you do not run this subcommand, replication will no longer work after the initialization. After running this subcommand, initialize the contents of all the servers in the topology, then run the subcommand post-external-initialization. Suboptions are as follows:

-t, --trustValue trusted|untrusted. Specifies the new value of the trust flag for the directory server to be modified. The value can be trusted or untrusted. The default value is trusted.

status

List the replication configuration for the specified base DNs of all directory servers defined in the registration information. If no base DNs are specified, the information for all base DNs is displayed. Suboptions are as follows:

-h, --hostname host. Directory server host name or IP address.

-p, --port port. Directory server administration port number.

-s, --script-friendly. Display the status in a format that can be parsed by a script.

The status sub command can have the following values:

  • Normal. The connection to a replication server is established with the right data set. Replication is working. If assured mode is used, acknowledgement signals from this directory server are sent.

  • Degraded. The connection to a replication server is established with the right data set. Replication is working in degraded mode as the directory server has a lot of changes to be replayed pending in the replication server queue. If assured mode is used, acknowledgement signals from this directory server are not expected.

  • Full Update. The connection to a replication server is established and a new data set is received from this connection (online import), to initialize the local back end.

  • Bad Data Set. The connection to a replication server is established with a data set that is different from the rest of the topology. The replication is not working. Either the other directory servers of the topology should be initialized with a compatible data set, or this server should be initialized with another data set compatible with other servers'.

  • Not Connected. The directory server is not connected to any replication server.

A.2.6.4 Options

The dsreplication command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -H) or its long form equivalent (for example, --help).

-b, --baseDN baseDN

Specify the base DN of the data to be replicated or initialized, or for which replication should be disabled. Multiple base DNs can be specified by using this option multiple times.

A.2.6.5 Configuration Options

--advanced

Use this option to access advanced settings when running this command in interactive mode.

A.2.6.6 LDAP Connection Options

Specify the User ID of the global administrator to bind to the server. If no global administrator was defined previously for any of the servers, this option creates a global administrator by using the data provided.

-j, --adminPasswordFile bindPasswordFile

Use the global administrator password in the specified file when authenticating to the directory server.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the specified options for SASL authentication.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-X, --trustAll

Trust any certificate that the server might present during SSL or StartTLS negotiation. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate.

-P, --trustStorePath trustStorePath

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-U, --TrustStorePasswordFile path

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this).

-K, --keyStorePath keyStorePath

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile keyStorePasswordFile

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used.

Specify the path to the properties file that contains the default command-line options.

-Q, --quiet

Run in quiet mode. No output will be generated unless a significant error occurs during the process.

A.2.6.8 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to stop or restart the server.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.2.6.9 Examples

The following examples assume that two directory servers are installed: host1 and host2. Both servers are configured with the default administration port (4444). The base DN dc=example,dc=com is populated with data on host1. The base DN exists on host2, but is empty. The examples configure replication between the two servers and initialize host2 with data.

Note:

The easiest way to use dsreplication is in interactive mode, in which case you are prompted for all of the relevant arguments. However, to illustrate which arguments are configured, these examples do not use the interactive mode.

Example A-19 Enabling Directory Server Replication

The following command enables replication for the base DN dc=example,dc=com on host1 and host2. The command runs in non-interactive mode (-n) and specifies that all server certificates should be accepted (-X).

$ dsreplication enable \
  --host1 host1 --port1 4444 --bindDN1 "cn=Directory Manager" \
  --bindPasswordFile1 /tmp/pwd-file --replicationPort1 8989 \
  --host2 host2 --port2 4444 --bindDN2 "cn=Directory Manager" \
  --bindPasswordFile2 /tmp/pwd-file --replicationPort2 8989 \
  --adminUID admin --adminPasswordFile /tmp/pwd-file --baseDN "dc=example,dc=com" -X -n

Example A-20 Initializing Directory Server Replication

To initialize one replica from another, use the initialize subcommand. The following command initializes the base DN dc=example,dc=com on host2 with the data contained on host1. The command runs in non-interactive mode (-n) and specifies that all server certificates should be accepted (-X).

$ dsreplication initialize --baseDN "dc=example,dc=com" \
  --adminUID admin --adminPasswordFile /tmp/pwd-file \
  --hostSource host1 --portSource 4444 \
  --hostDestination host2 --portDestination 4444 -X -n

To initialize an entire topology, use the initialize-all subcommand. This subcommand takes the details of the source directory server as options and initializes all other replicas for which replication has been enabled.

Example A-21 Obtaining the Directory Server Replication Status

The following command obtains the replication status of the directory servers in the topology.

$ dsreplication status --adminUID admin --adminPasswordFile /tmp/pwd-file -X --hostname host1 --port 4444

dc=example,dc=com - Replication Enabled

A.2.6.11 Using a Properties File

The directory server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the dsreplication command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. For more information, see Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands."

The following options can be stored in a properties file:

  • adminUID

  • baseDN

  • certNickname

  • keyStorePasswordFile

  • keyStorePath

  • saslOption

    SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

  • trustAll

  • trustStorePasswordFile

  • trustStorePath

Entries in the properties file have the following format:

toolname.propertyname=propertyvalue

For example:

dsreplication.baseDN=dc=example,dc=com

A.2.6.12 Location

  • UNIX and Linux: INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/bin/dsreplication

A.2.12 oud-replication-gateway-setup

The oud-replication-gateway-setup command is used to setup the replication gateway instance.

A.2.12.1 Synopsis

oud-replication-gateway-setup [options]

A.2.12.2 Description

The oud-replication-gateway-setup command installs and configures a replication gateway instance, including specifying the ports on which it will listen, the DN and password for the initial root user, and the base DN for the replication gateway data. The replication gateway allows replication to work between a set of Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition servers and a set of Oracle Unified Directory servers.

The utility can be run in one of the following modes:

  • Graphical-user interface (GUI) mode. GUI mode is the default and recommended installation option. The oud-replication-gateway-setup GUI provides an easy interface for installing and configuring replication servers in replicated multi-network environments. GUI mode also allows for easy server setup using SSL or StartTLS if desired.

    The utility launches the graphical installer and creates the Oracle Unified Directory instance in OUD_BASE_LOCATION/INSTANCE_DIR. The default instance directory name is asinst_1, with subsequent instances on the same server named asinst_2, asinst_3, and so on.

  • Command-line interface (CLI) mode. The command-line mode is either interactive or non-interactive. The interactive CLI mode prompts you for any required information before the configuration begins, and is used with the --cli option, or if no GUI is available.

    The utility launches the command-line installer and creates the Oracle Unified Directory instance in OUD_BASE_LOCATION/INSTANCE_DIR. The default instance directory name is asinst_1, with subsequent instances on the same server named asinst_2, asinst_3, and so on.

    The non-interactive CLI mode enables you to set up the server without user intervention. Use the --no-prompt and the --quiet options to suppress interactivity and output information, respectively.

When the oud-replication-gateway-setup command is run without any options, it starts in GUI mode but falls back to interactive command-line mode if no GUI is available. To run the setup in interactive command-line mode use the --cli option. Note that no options are allowed if the command is run in GUI mode.

A.2.12.3 Options

The oud-replication-gateway-setup command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -i) or its long form equivalent (for example, --cli).

-i, --cli

Use the command line install. If not specified the graphical interface will be launched. The rest of the options (excluding help and version) will only be taken into account if this option is specified.

A.2.12.4 Replication Gateway Configuration Options

-h, --hostname hostname

The fully-qualified name of the host where the replication gateway will be installed. The Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition and Oracle Unified Directory servers in the replication topology must be able to access this hostname. If this option is not provided, a default of localhost is used.

--adminConnectorPort port

Specifies the port on which the administration connector should listen for administration traffic. For information about the administration connector, see Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server." The configuration and administration tools use this port to connect to the replication gateway. The default value is 4444.

--replicationPortForLegacy port

Specifies the port that is used by the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server to communicate with the replication gateway to replicate contents.

-S, --skipPortCheck

Do not make any attempt to determine whether the specified port is available. Normally, when this option is not present, the oud-replication-gateway-setup command verifies if that port is in use or not, and if not in use then the user running the command can bind to that port. With the --skipPortCheck option, the oud-replication-gateway-setup command skips the port check.

-D, --rootUserDN rootUserDN

DN for the initial root user for the replication gateway.

-j, --rootUserPasswordFile rootUserPasswordFile

Path to a file containing the password for the initial root user for the replication gateway.

-O, --doNotStart

Do not start the replication gateway when the configuration is completed.

-b, --baseDN baseDN

Specify the base DN of the data to be replicated between the Oracle Unified Directory and the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server. Multiple base DN's can be provided by using this option multiple times.

A.2.12.5 Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition Server Options

--hostNameLegacy hostname

The fully-qualified name of the host or IP address of the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server whose contents will be replicated.

Specifies the DN that is used to bind the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server whose contents will be replicated.

--bindPasswordFileLegacy bindPasswordFile

Specifies the file that stores the password that is used to bind the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server whose contents will be replicated.

--secureReplicationLegacy

Specifies if the replication updates between the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server and the replication gateway are sent encrypted or not. If you enable this option, then you must specify the certificate to be used by the server using the options in Replication Gateway Security Options and the port specified using argument --portLegacy must be an LDAP port.

--clientAuthenticationToLegacy

Uses client authentication to send replication updates from the replication gateway to the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server. You can use this argument only if attribute --secureReplicationLegacy is used.

--certFileForClientAuthenticationToLegacy certificateFile

Specifies the file that contains the certificate to be used in client authentication mode when the replication gateway connects to the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server to send replication updates. The file must contain the certificate in X.509 format.

--doNotSendUpdatesToLegacyServer

Do not propagate the updates made in the Oracle Unified Directory servers to the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server. If you use this option the changes made directly in the Oracle Unified Directory servers will not be propagated to the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition servers replication topology.

--doNotUpdateTrustStoreWithLegacyCertsArg

If you specify this argument and the replication gateway sends replication updates to the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server using an encrypted communication (specified using the --secureReplicationLegacy argument), then you will have to update the trust store used by the replication gateway with the server certificate of the Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition server for replication to work.

--clientAuthenticationFromLegacy

The following examples show how to use the replication server commands.

Example A-38 Running oud-replication-gateway-setup in GUI Mode

The following command runs an installation in GUI mode:

$ oud-replication-gateway-setup

The utility launches the graphical installer and creates the Oracle Unified Directory instance in OUD_BASE_LOCATION/INSTANCE_DIR. The default instance directory name is asinst_1, with subsequent instances on the same server named asinst_2, asinst_3, and so on. To specify a different instance name, set the INSTANCE_NAME environment variable before you run the setup, for example:

$ export INSTANCE_NAME=my-oud-instance

The GUI is launched and provides several screens that walk you through setting up your replication server in standalone or replicated environments. You also have the option to set up SSL or StartTLS certificates.

Example A-39 Running oud-replication-gateway-setup in Interactive Mode From the Command Line

The oud-replication-gateway-setup command can be run in interactive mode, where you are prompted for installation options. To run oud-replication-gateway-setup in interactive mode, type the following command:

$ oud-replication-gateway-setup --cli

The command prompts you for the required setup values. Press Enter or Return to accept the default, or enter a value at the prompt.

The utility launches the command-line installer and creates the Oracle Unified Directory instance in OUD_BASE_LOCATION/INSTANCE_DIR. The default instance directory name is asinst_1, with subsequent instances on the same server named asinst_2, asinst_3, and so on. To specify a different instance name, set the INSTANCE_NAME environment variable before you run the setup, for example:

$ export INSTANCE_NAME=my-oud-instance

A.2.12.12 Exit Codes

0

Successful completion or successful no-op.

1

4

Error initializing server.

A.2.12.13 Using a Properties File

The directory server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the oud-replication-gateway-setup command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. For more information, see Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands."

All the oud-replication-gateway-setup options can be stored in a properties file. Entries in the properties file have the following format:

toolname.propertyname=propertyvalue

For example:

oud-replication-gateway-setup.hostname=grevalon:1444

A.2.12.14 Log Files

The oud-replication-gateway-setup command writes a log file named oud-setup-IDnumber where IDnumber is a decimal number. The log files are located at these paths:

  • UNIX (Solaris): /var/tmp/

  • Linux: /tmp/

  • Windows: %TEMP%

    By default, this folder is C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp.

A.2.12.15 Location

The oud-replication-gateway-setup command is located at these paths:

  • UNIX and Linux: OUD_BASE_LOCATION/OUD_ORACLE_HOME/oud-replication-gateway-setup

  • Windows: OUD_BASE_LOCATION\OUD_ORACLE_HOME\oud-replication-gateway-setup.bat

A.2.13 oud-setup

The oud-setup command installs and minimally configures a directory server instance.

This command sets up a directory server instance. For information about setting up a proxy server instance, see Section A.2.14, "oud-proxy-setup."

A.2.13.1 Synopsis

oud-setup [options]

A.2.13.2 Description

The oud-setup command installs and configure a directory server instance, including specifying the ports on which it will listen, the DN and password for the initial root user, the base DN for the directory data, and the manner in which the database should be populated. It can be run in one of the following modes:

  • Graphical-user interface (GUI) mode. GUI mode is the default and recommended installation option. The oud-setup GUI provides an easy interface for installing and configuring standalone directory servers or replication servers in replicated multi-network environments. GUI mode also allows for easy server setup using SSL or StartTLS if desired.

    The utility launches the graphical installer and creates the Oracle Unified Directory instance in OUD_BASE_LOCATION/INSTANCE_DIR. The default instance directory name is asinst_1, with subsequent instances on the same server named asinst_2, asinst_3, and so on.

  • Command-line interface (CLI) mode. The command-line mode is either interactive or non-interactive. The interactive CLI mode prompts you for any required information before the configuration begins, and is used with the --cli option, or if no GUI is available.

    The utility launches the command-line installer and creates the Oracle Unified Directory instance in OUD_BASE_LOCATION/INSTANCE_DIR. The default instance directory name is asinst_1, with subsequent instances on the same server named asinst_2, asinst_3, and so on.

    The non-interactive CLI mode enables you to set up the server without user intervention. Use the --no-prompt and the --quiet options to suppress interactivity and output information, respectively.

When the oud-setup command is run without any options, it starts in GUI mode but falls back to interactive command-line mode if no GUI is available. To run oud-setup in command-line mode, use the --cli option. The options that can be provided are listed below. Note that no options are allowed if the command is run in GUI mode.

A.2.13.3 Options

The oud-setup command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -a) or its long form equivalent (for example, --addBaseEntry).

-a, --addBaseEntry

Indicates whether to create the base entry in the directory server database.

-i, --cli

Run the setup command in command-line interactive mode rather than in GUI mode. If setup is run without the --cli option, it cannot accept other options.

-b, --baseDN baseDN

Use the base DN for user information in the Directory Server. The default value for this option is dc=example,dc=com. Multiple base DNs can be specified by providing this option multiple times.

-l, --ldifFile filename

Use the specified LDIF file to populate the database. Data can be imported from multiple files by providing this option multiple times, in which case the files are processed in the order they are provided in the option list. This option must not be used in conjunction with either the --addBaseEntry or --sampleData option. If this option is not provided, then the database is left empty.

-R, --rejectFile filename

Write rejected entries to the specified file. Rejected entries occur if they do not comply with the default schema during an import using the -l or --ldifFile option.

--skipFile filename

Write skipped entries to the specified file. Skipped entries occur if entries cannot be placed under any specified base DN during an import using the -l or --ldifFile option.

-d, --sampleData number-of-entries

Populate the database with the specified number of sample user entries. The entries are generated by using the MakeLDIF facility of the import command and are based on the default example.template template. This option must not be used in conjunction with either --addBaseEntry or --ldifFile. If this option is not provided, then the database is left empty.

--eus

Configure the server for Oracle's Enterprise User Security (EUS).

-p,--ldapPort port

Contact the directory server at the specified port. If it is not provided, then the default port of 1389 as non-root and 389 as root is used.

--adminConnectorPort port

Specifies the port on which the administration connector should listen for administration traffic. For information about the administration connector, see Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server." The default value is 4444.

-x, --jmxPort port

Specify the port for a JMX MBeans server connection. The default value for this option is 1689.

-S, --skipPortCheck

Do not make any attempt to determine whether the specified port is available. Normally, when this option is not present, the oud-setup command verifies that the port is not in use and that the user running the setup command can bind to that port. With the --skipPortCheck option, the oud-setup command skips the port check.

-D, --rootUserDN rootUserDN

Use the specified root user DN to authenticate the directory server. This option is used when performing simple authentication and is not required if SASL authentication is used. The default value for this option is cn=Directory Manager.

-j, --rootUserPasswordFile filename

Specifies the file containing the password for the initial root user while authenticating the directory server.

-O, --doNotStart

Do not start the directory server when the configuration is completed.

-q, --enableStartTLS

Enable StartTLS to allow secure communication with the directory server by using the LDAP port.

-Z, --ldapsPort port

Contact the directory server at the specified port for LDAP SSL (LDAPS) communication. The LDAPS port will be configured and SSL will be enabled only if this option is explicitly specified. The default value is 1636.

--generateSelfSignedCertificate

Generate a self-signed certificate that the directory server should use when accepting SSL-based connection or performing StartTLS negotiation.

-h, --hostname host

The name of the directory server host or IP address that is used to generate the self-signed certificate. This argument is considered only if the self-signed certificate argument, --generateSelfSignedCertificate is specified

--usePkcs12Keystore path

Specify the path to the PKCS#12 keystore that contains the server certificate.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificate keystore. A password is required when you specify an existing certificate (JKS, JCEKS, PKCS#11, or PKCS#12) as a server certificate.

-N, --certNickname nickname

Use the specified certificate for SSL or StartTLS client authentication.

-e, --enableWindowsService

Enable the directory server as a Windows service. For Windows-platforms only.

A.2.13.4 Command Input/Output Options

A.2.15.1 Synopsis

start-ds [options]

A.2.15.2 Description

The start-ds command is used to start the server and to provide general server information.

You can run start-ds without any options, which starts the server as a background process. In this case, the script will not exit until the server has either started successfully or has encountered an error that prevents it from starting.

On UNIX systems, the server will not start if it cannot log the process ID at INSTANCE_DIR/logs/server.pid. Ensure that the file is writable by the user account that the server uses.

A.2.15.3 Options

The start-ds command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -N) or its long form equivalent (for example, --nodetach).

-L, --useLastKnownGoodConfig

Attempt to start using the configuration that was in place at the last successful startup (if it is available) rather than using the current active configuration.

-N, --nodetach

Start the server as a foreground process that does not detach from the terminal. When the server is running in this mode, it can be stopped by using the stop-ds command from another window, or by pressing Control+C in the terminal window in which the server is running.

-s, --systemInfo

Display general information about the system on which the server is installed, including the instance and installation paths, and then exit rather than attempting to start the server.

-t, --timeout seconds

Wait no longer than the maximum time (in seconds) before the command returns. (The server continues the startup process, regardless). A value of 0 indicates an infinite timeout, which means that the command returns only when the server startup is completed. The default value is 60 seconds. This option cannot be used with the -N, --nodetach option.

A.2.15.4 Command Input/Output Options

The status command can be used to display basic server information, such as the status of the server (started or stopped), the configured connection handlers, or the list of defined back ends and suffixes.

If the server is started, the status command connects to the server over SSL, through the administration connector.

For more information, see Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server."

If the server is stopped, you must run this command as a user with file system access rights to read the configuration files (particularly the config.ldif file).

Note:

Certain monitoring data can only be displayed when the server is running (for example, the number of entries in a back end).

A.2.16.3 LDAP Connection Options

The status command contacts the server over SSL through the administration connector (described in Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server"). These connection options are used to contact the server.

-D, --bindDN bindDN

Use the bind DN to authenticate to the server. This option is used when performing simple authentication and is not required if SASL authentication is to be used. The default value for this option is cn=Directory Manager.

-j, --bindPasswordFile filename

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the server.

-K, --keyStorePath path

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path.

-N, --certNickname nickname

Use the specified certificate for client authentication.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the specified options for SASL authentication.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-P, --trustStorePath path

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used.

-U, --trustStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this).

-X, --trustAll

Trust all server SSL certificates that the server presents. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate.

A.2.16.4 Command Input/Output Options

-n, --no-prompt

Use non-interactive mode. If some data in the command is missing, you are not prompted and the command will fail.

--noPropertiesFile

Indicate that the command should not use a properties file to get the default command-line options.

--propertiesFilePath path

Specify the path to the properties file that contains the default command-line options.

-r, --refresh period

When this argument is specified, the status command will display its contents periodically. Used to specify the period (in seconds) between two displays of the status.

-s, --script-friendly

Run in "script friendly" mode. Display the output in a format that can be easily parsed by a script.

A.2.16.5 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to stop or restart the server.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.2.16.6 Examples

The following examples show how to use the status command.

A.2.16.7 Exit Codes

An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. A nonzero exit code indicates that an error occurred during processing.

A.2.16.8 Using a Properties File

The server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the status command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. For more information, see Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands."

The following options can be stored in a properties file:

  • bindDN

  • bindPasswordFile

  • certNickname

  • hostname

  • keyStorePasswordFile

  • keyStorePath

  • port

  • saslOption

    SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

  • trustAll

  • trustStorePasswordFile

  • trustStorePath

Entries in the properties file have the following format:

toolname.propertyname=propertyvalue

For example:

status.bindPasswordFile=/path/pwd-file

A.2.17 stop-ds

The stop-ds command stops a server instance.

A.2.17.1 Synopsis

stop-ds [options]

A.2.17.2 Description

The stop-ds command is used to stop or restart the server. It can operate on either a local or remote server instance.

The ability to perform a local stop of the server is currently only available on UNIX based systems. When run locally, stop-ds sends a kill signal to the server process. This method of stopping the server is used if stop-ds is run without any options and if a PID file (INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/logs/server.pid) exists.

The remote shutdown mechanism issues an LDAP request to create a task entry in the server. The command can be run from any system that can communicate with the server (local or remote). It can also be used to restart the server. In this case, the server does an "in-core" restart, which reinitializes itself without shutting down the JVM.

When it is run remotely, stop-ds communicates with the server over SSL, through the administration connector. For more information, see Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server."

A.2.17.3 Options

The stop-ds command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -D bindDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --bindDN bindDN).

-r,--stopReason reason

Provide a human-readable reason for the shutdown. If a reason is provided, it appears in the server's error log, and is provided to shut down plugins and shut down listeners.

-R,--restart

Restart the server rather than shutting it down. If the --restart option is used along with authentication options, the server will reinitialize itself without shutting down the JVM. Because the JVM is not stopped, any configuration changes that require a JVM restart will not take effect. If the --restart option is used without authenticating, the server will first stop, then start. A new process will replace the original server.

-t,--stopTime time

Indicates the date and time at which the shutdown operation begins as a server task, expressed in the format YYYYMMDDhhmmss. A value of 0 causes the shutdown to be scheduled for immediate execution. When this option is used, the operation is scheduled to start at the specified time, after which this command exits immediately.

-Y,--proxyAs authzID

Use authorization control during the shutdown request. The value provided for this option should be an authorization ID, which can be in the form dn: followed by a user DN or u: followed by a user name. Clients will use the proxy authorization v2 control as described in RFC 4370 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4370.txt).

A.2.17.4 LDAP Connection Options

The stop-ds command contacts the server over SSL through the administration connector (described in Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server"). These connection options are used to contact the server.

-D, --bindDN bindDN

Use the bind DN to authenticate to the server. This option is used when performing simple authentication and is not required if SASL authentication is to be used. The default value for this option is cn=Directory Manager.

-h, --hostname hostname

Contact the server on the specified hostname or IP address. If this option is not provided, a default of localhost is used.

-j, --bindPasswordFile filename

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the server.

-K, --keyStorePath path

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path.

-N, --certNickname nickname

Use the specified certificate for client authentication.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the specified options for SASL authentication.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-p, --port port

Contact the server at the specified administration port. If this option is not provided, a default administration port of 4444 is used.

-P, --trustStorePath path

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used.

-U, --trustStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this).

-X, --trustAll

Trust all server SSL certificates that the server presents. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate.

A.2.17.5 Command Input/Output Options

--noPropertiesFile

Indicate that a properties file will not be used to get the default command-line options.

--propertiesFilePath path

Specify the path to the properties file that contains the default command-line options.

-Q, --quiet

Run in quiet mode. No output will be generated unless a significant error occurs during the process.

A.2.17.6 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to stop or restart the server.

--version

Display the version information for the server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.2.17.7 Examples

The following examples show how to use the stop-ds command.

Example A-51 Stopping a Server Locally

The following command stops the server:

A.2.17.11 Related Commands

Section A.2.15, "start-ds"

A.2.18 uninstall

The uninstall command is used to uninstall the server instance. It is applicable for directory servers, proxy servers, and replication gateway servers. The command removes the server instance, and not the software.

A.2.18.1 Synopsis

uninstall [options]

A.2.18.2 Description

The uninstall command is used to uninstall a server instance. It can be run in one of the following modes:

  • Graphical-user interface (GUI) mode. GUI mode is the default and recommended uninstallation option. The uninstall GUI provides an easy interface for removing instance files.

  • Command-line interface (CLI) mode. The command-line mode is either interactive or non-interactive. The interactive CLI mode prompts you for any required information before the uninstallation begins, and is used with the --cli option, or if no GUI is available.

    The non-interactive CLI mode enables you to uninstall the instance files without user intervention. Use the --no-prompt and the --quiet options to suppress interactivity and output information, respectively.

Whether running in GUI mode or in command-line mode, uninstall lists the components that you can remove. If uninstall cannot remove all of the instance files, it displays a message that lists any directories that are still present.

Depending on the type of server installed, you are presented with different uninstall options. These are broadly categorized into the following:

Note:

For any instance (directory server, proxy, or replication gateway) type that you decide to remove, the uninstall procedure also stops the server. In addition, for a server instance that is part of a replication topology, the uninstall procedure removes the server that is under deletion from that topology. On a Windows platform, if the instance was installed as a windows service, the windows service is unregistered.

A.3 Data Administration Commands

The following sections describe the data administration commands:

A.3.1 backup

The backup command archives the contents of one or more directory server back ends.

A.3.1.1 Synopsis

backup [options]

A.3.1.2 Description

The backup command archives the contents of one or more directory server back ends. The command can perform this operation immediately or at a scheduled time. For more information, see Section 14.4, "Configuring Commands As Tasks."

The backup command can be run when the server is online or offline. If the backup is run while the server is online, the command contacts the server over SSL, through the administration connector, and registers a backup task. For more information about the administration connector, see Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server."

A.3.1.3 Options

The backup command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -B backupID) or its long form equivalent (for example, --incrementalBaseID backupID).

-a, --backUpAll

Back up all configured back ends. This option must not be used in conjunction with --backendID.

-A, --hash

Generate a hash, or message digest, of the contents of the backup archive. The hash can be used as a checksum during the restore process to ensure that the backup has not been altered.

-B, --incrementalBaseID backupID

Specify the backup ID for the existing backup against which to take an incremental backup. If this ID is not provided, the incremental backup is based on the latest incremental or full backup contained in the backup directory.

-c, --compress

Compress the contents of the backup archive. The compression algorithm used may vary based on the back end type.

-d, --backupDirectory path

Write the backup files to the specified directory. If multiple back ends are archived, a subdirectory is created below this path for each back end. Otherwise, the backup files are placed directly in this directory. Note that multiple backups for the same back end can be placed in the same directory. If an incremental backup is to be performed, the backup directory must already contain at least one full backup. This is a required option.

For an online backup, the root for relative paths is the instance directory, and not the current working directory. For example, if you specify -d bknov2011, the backup files will be placed in instance-dir/bknov2011.

-i, --incremental

Perform an incremental backup rather than a full backup. An incremental backup includes only the data that has changed since a previous incremental or full backup. Thus, running an incremental backup can be notably faster than a full backup. When restoring an incremental backup, it is first necessary to restore the original full backup and then any intermediate incremental backups, which can make the restore process somewhat slower than restoring just a full backup. Note that some types of back ends might not support performing incremental backups. In this case, this option is ignored and a full backup is performed.

-I, --backupID backupID

Specify an identifier to use for the backup. If this is not provided, a backup ID is generated, based on the current time. The backup ID must be unique among all backups in the provided backup directory.

-n, --backendID backendID

Specify the ID of the back-end to be saved. This option can be used multiple times in a single command to indicate that multiple back ends should be backed up. The available back ends in the server can be determined by using the dsconfig list-backends command.

-s, --signHash

Generate a signed hash. This provides even stronger assurance that neither the backup archive nor the hash of its contents have been altered. This option can only be used if a connection to an online directory server instance is present. In this case, you must specify the --hostname, --port, --bindDN, and --bindPasswordFile options of the online directory server that will generate a signed hash of the archive.

-y, --encrypt

Encrypt the contents of the backup archive. This option can only be used if a connection to an online server instance is present. In this case, you must specify the --hostname, --port, --bindDN, and --bindPasswordFile options of the online directory server that will encrypt the archive.

A.3.1.4 Task Back End Connection Options

Running an online backup requires access to the tasks back end. Access to the tasks back end is provided over SSL through the administration connector. These connection options are used when the backup runs online.

-D, --bindDN bindDN

Use the bind DN to authenticate to the directory server. This option is used when performing simple authentication and is not required if SASL authentication is to be used. The default value for this option is cn=Directory Manager.

-h, --hostname hostname

Contact the directory server on the specified hostname or IP address. If this option is not provided, a default of localhost is used.

-j, --bindPasswordFile filename

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the directory server.

-K, --keyStorePath path

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path.

-N, --certNickname nickname

Use the specified certificate for client authentication.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the specified options for SASL authentication.

-p, --port port

Contact the directory server at the specified administration port. If this option is not provided, a default administration port of 4444 is used.

-P, --trustStorePath path

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used.

-U, --trustStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this).

-X, --trustAll

Trust all server SSL certificates that the directory server presents. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate.

A.3.1.5 Task Scheduling Options

These options are used when you specify that the backup should run as a scheduled task.

--completionNotify emailAddress

Specify the email address of a recipient to be notified when the task completes. This option can be specified more than once in a single command.

--dependency taskId

Specify the ID of a task upon which this task depends. A task does not start executing until all of its dependencies have completed execution.

--errorNotify emailAddress

Specify the email address of a recipient to be notified if an error occurs when this task executes. This option can be specified more than once in a single command.

--failedDependencyAction action

Specify the action that this task will take if one of its dependent tasks fails. The value must be one of PROCESS, CANCEL, or DISABLE. If no value is specified, the default action is CANCEL.

--recurringTask schedulePattern

Indicates that the task is recurring and will be scheduled according to the schedulePattern, expressed as a crontab(5) compatible time and date pattern.

-t, --start startTime

Indicates the date and time at which the operation starts when scheduled as a directory server task expressed in the format YYYYMMDDhhmmss. A value of 0 schedules the task for immediate execution. When this option is specified, the operation is scheduled to start at the specified time after which the command exits immediately.

A.3.1.6 Command Input/Output Options

--noPropertiesFile

Indicates that a properties file is not used to obtain the default command-line options.

--propertiesFilePath path

Specify the path to the properties file that contains the default command-line options.

A.3.1.7 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to back up data.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.3.1.8 Examples

The following examples show how to use the directory server commands.

Example A-60 Backing Up All Configured Back Ends

The following command archives all directory server back ends (-a), compresses them (-c), and saves them to a specified directory (-d).

$ backup -a -c -d /tmp/backup

Display the contents of the backup directory, to see the subdirectories for each back end:

$ ls /tmp/backup
config    schema    tasks     userRoot

Display the contents of a subdirectory, to see that the system assigned a backup ID based on the current time.

$ ls /tmp/backup/userRoot/
backup-userRoot-20081015151640Z  backup.info

You can assign your own unique backup ID by using the -I option. For example:

$ backup -a -c -d /tmp/backup -I October08

Display the contents of the userRoot subdirectory to see the assigned backup ID.

$ ls /tmp/backup/userRoot/
backup-userRoot-October08        backup.info

Example A-61 Backing Up a Specific Back End

Use the -n option to specify a back end to be backed up. The following command archives the userRoot back end only.

$ backup -n userRoot -d /tmp/backup

Example A-62 Running an Incremental Backup

The following command archives all directory server back ends (-a), using incremental backup (-i), compresses them (-c), and saves the data to a directory (-d).

$ backup -a -i -c -d /tmp/backup

Example A-63 Running an Incremental Backup on a Specific Back End

Use the list-backends command to display the current configured back ends.

$ list-backends
Backend ID     : Base DN
---------------:--------------------
adminRoot      : cn=admin data
ads-truststore : cn=ads-truststore
backup         : cn=backups
config         : cn=config
monitor        : cn=monitor
schema         : cn=schema
tasks          : cn=tasks
userRoot       : "dc=example,dc=com"

The following command runs an incremental backup (-i) on the userRoot back end (-n), compresses the backup (-c), and saves the data to a directory (-d).

$ backup -i -n userRoot -c -d /tmp/backup/userRoot

Example A-64 Running an Incremental Backup Against an Existing Backup

Assume that you have created two archived incremental backup files by using the -I or --backupID option and assigned the IDs 1234 and 4898 to the two files, respectively:

/tmp/backup/userRoot> ls
./     backup-userRoot-1234   backup.info
../    backup-userRoot-4898   backup.info.save

The following command runs an incremental backup (-i) on all configured back ends (-a) based on the backup ID 1234 (-B), assigns a backup ID of 5438 to the incremental backup, and saves the data to a directory (-d).

$ backup -a -i -B 1234 -I 5438 -d /tmp/backup

The contents of backup.info show that the latest incremental backup (backup_id=5438) has a dependency on backup_id=1234:

$ backend_dn=ds-cfg-backend-id=userRoot,cn=Backends,cn=config

backup_id=4898

Example A-65 Backing Up All Configured Back Ends with Encryption and Signed Hash

The directory server provides support for backup encryption (using --encrypt), hash generation (using --hash), and signed hash (using --signHash) to secure archived data. These options require a connection to an online server instance, over SSL through the administration connector. When you use these options, you must therefore specify the connection details, including the host, administration port, bind DN and bind password file. You must also specify the certificate details for the SSL connection.

The following command archives all directory server back ends (-a), compresses them (-c), generates a hash (-A), signs the hash (-s), encrypts the data while archiving the data (-y), assigns a back end ID of 123, and saves the data to a directory (-d). The self signed certificate is trusted using the -X (--trustAll) option.

$ backup -h localhost -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j /path/pwd-file -p 4444 -X \
  -a -c -A -s -y -I 123 -d /tmp/backup
Backup task 2008101609295810 scheduled to start immediately
...
  

Example A-66 Scheduling a Backup

Scheduling a backup requires online access to the tasks back end. Access to this back end is provided over SSL through the administration connector. When you schedule a backup, you must therefore specify the connection details, including the host, administration port, bind DN and bind password file. You must also specify the certificate details for the SSL connection.

The following command schedules a backup of all components (-a) and writes it to the /tmp/backups directory (-d). The start time is specified with the --start option. The backup sends a completion notification and error notification to admin@example.com. The self signed certificate is trusted using the -X (--trustAll) option.

$ backup -h localhost -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j /path/pwd-file -p 4444 -X \
  -a -d /tmp/backups --start 20090124121500 --completionNotify admin@example.com \
  --errorNotify admin@example.com
Backup task 2007102914530410 scheduled to start Jan 24, 2009 12:15:00 PM SAST

You can view this scheduled task by using the manage-tasks command. For more information, see Section 14.4, "Configuring Commands As Tasks."

A.3.1.9 Exit Codes

An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. An exit code of 1 indicates that an error occurred during processing.

A.3.1.10 Using a Properties File

The directory server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the backup command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. For more information, see Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands."

A.3.3 dbtest

The dbtest command debugs an Oracle Berkeley Java Edition (JE) back end.

A.3.3.1 Synopsis

dbtest subcommands [options]

A.3.3.2 Description

The dbtest command is used to debug an Oracle Berkeley Java Edition (JE) back end. The command lists the root, entry, database containers, and the status of indexes in the database. The command also provides a dump of the database for debugging purposes.

A back end is a repository for storing data on a directory server. The back end uses some type of database (DB) to store data and to maintain a set of indexes that allow the back end to locate the entries in the directory. The primary database for the directory server is the Berkeley Java Edition (JE) database, which organizes its data as a single collection of keyed records in B-tree form.

You can use the dbtest command to access the following information:

  • Root container. Specifies the back end ID and the directory for the back end.

  • Entry container. Specifies the base DN that the entry container stores on disk, the database prefix to use for the database names, and the number of entries in the database. Each base DN of a JE back end is given its own entry container.

  • Database container. Specifies the database name, type, and JE database name for the specific back end ID.

  • Index Status. Specifies the index name, type, status and associated JE database.

Currently, the dbtest command is a read-only command and cannot alter the database. The command can run in online or offline mode. However, running dbtest in online mode can take considerably longer than running it in offline mode.

A.3.3.3 Subcommands

A.3.4 encode-password

The encode-password command encodes and compares user passwords.

This command is not supported for the proxy.

A.3.4.1 Synopsis

encode-password options

A.3.4.2 Description

The encode-password command can be used to interact with the password storage schemes defined in the directory server. It has three modes of operation:

  • List schemes mode. List the password storage schemes that are available in the directory server. In this mode, only the --listSchemes option is required.

  • Encode clear-text mode. Encode a clear-text password using a provided password storage scheme. In this mode, the --storageScheme option is required, along with a clear-text password that is read from a file (--clearPasswordFile).

  • Validate password mode. Determine whether a given clear-text password is correct for a provided encoded password. In this mode, a clear-text password (from --clearPasswordFile) and an encoded password (from --encodedPasswordFile) are required.

The set of authentication passwords available for use in the directory server can be retrieved from the supportedAuthPasswordSchemes attribute of the root DSE entry. You can use ldapsearch to view this information.

A.3.4.3 Options

The encode-password command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -f filename) or its long form equivalent (for example, --clearPasswordFile filename).

-a, --authPasswordSyntax

Use the Authentication Password Syntax (as defined in RFC 3112 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3112.txt)), which encodes values in a form scheme$authInfo$authValue. If this option is not provided, then the user password syntax (which encodes values in a form scheme$value will be used.

-E, --encodedPasswordFile filename

Use the encoded password from the specified file to compare against a given clear-text password. If the --authPasswordSyntax option is also provided, then this password must be encoded using the authentication password syntax. Otherwise, it should be encoded using the user password syntax.

-f, --clearPasswordFile filename

Use the clear-text password from the specified file when either encoding a clear-text password or comparing a clear-text password against an encoded password.

-i, --interactivePassword

The password to encode or to compare against an encoded password is interactively requested from the user.

-l, --listSchemes

Display a list of the password storage schemes that are available for use in the directory server. If the option is used by itself, it displays the names of the password storage schemes that support the user password syntax. If the option used in conjunction with --authPasswordSyntax, it displays the names of the password storage schemes that support the authentication password syntax.

-r, --useCompareResultCode

Use an exit code that indicates whether a given clear-text password matched a provided encoded password. If this option is provided, the directory server results in an exit code of 6 (COMPARE_TRUE) or an exit code of 5 (COMPARE_FALSE). Any other exit code indicates that the command failed to complete its processing to make the necessary determination. If this option is not provided, an exit code of zero will be used to indicate that the command completed its processing successfully, or something other than zero if an error occurred.

-s, --storageScheme storageScheme

Specify the name of the password storage scheme to use when encoding a clear-text password. If the --authPasswordSyntax option is provided, the value must be the name of a supported authentication password storage scheme. Otherwise, specify the name of a supported user password storage scheme.

-?, -H, --help

Display the command-line usage information for the command and exit immediately without taking any other action.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server.

A.3.5 export-ldif

The export-ldif command exports the contents of a directory server back end to LDIF format.

A.3.5.1 Synopsis

export-ldif [options]

A.3.5.2 Description

The export-ldif command exports the contents of a directory server back end to LDIF format. This command can run the export immediately or can be scheduled to run at a specified date and time. For more information, see Section 14.4, "Configuring Commands As Tasks."

Because some back ends cannot be imported to the directory server, the export-ldif command does not export the following back ends: monitor, ads-truststore, backup, and config-file-handler.

You can run the export-ldif command in online or offline mode.

  • Online mode. In online mode, export-ldif contacts a running directory server instance over SSL, through the administration connector, and registers an export task. The command runs in online mode automatically if you specify any of the task back end connection options. For more information about the administration connector, see Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server."

  • Offline mode. In offline mode, export-ldif accesses the database directly rather than through a directory server instance. To perform an offline export, the directory server must be stopped.

A.3.5.3 Options

The export-ldif command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -b branchDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --includeBranch branchDN).

-a, --appendToLDIF

Append the export to an existing LDIF file rather than overwriting it. If this option is not provided, the directory server overwrites the specified LDIF file, if it exists.

-b, --includeBranch branchDN

Specify the base DN for a branch or subtree of the data to be exported. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple base DNs. If this option is provided, entries contained in the back end that are not at or below one of the provided base DNs are skipped.

-B, --excludeBranch branchDN

Specify the base DN for a branch or subtree of the data to be omitted from the export. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple base DNs. If this option is provided, any entries contained in the back end that are at or below one of the provided base DNs are skipped. Note that the use of the --excludeBranch option takes precedence over the --includeBranch option. If an entry is at or below a DN contained in both the included and excluded lists, it is not included. This capability makes it possible to include data for only part of a branch. For example, you can include all entries below dc=example,dc=com except those below ou=People,dc=example,dc=com.

-c, --compress

Compress the LDIF data as it is written. The data is compressed using the GZIP format, which is the format used by the --isCompressed option of the import-ldif command.

-e, --excludeAttribute attribute

Exclude the specified attribute name during the export. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple attributes. If this option is provided, any attributes listed are omitted from the entries that are exported.

-E, --excludeFilter filter

Exclude the entries identified by the specified search filter during the export. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple filters. If this option is provided, any entry in the back end that matches the filter is skipped. Note that the use of the --excludeFilter option takes precedence over the --includeFilter option. If an entry matches filters in both the included and excluded lists, the entry is skipped.

-i, --includeAttribute attribute

Include the specified attribute name in the export. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple attributes. If this option is provided, any attributes not listed are omitted from the entries that are exported.

-g, --algorithm algorithm

The specified algorithm used in the export. This option is optional and you can enter one the following values:

  • diskOrder: This option enables to read data from an Oracle Berkeley DB Java Edition (JE) back end in the order with which they are stored on the disk.

    The benefits of this option are as follows:

    • It is recommended when the database does not fit entirely in the database cache.

    • It temporarily uses 20% of the database cache to run and then releases it. The database cache memory is decreased by 20% during an export.

    Note:

    This algorithm uses a special feature called Disk Ordered from the JE backend and may cause an error, when the server is running and if you access it for modifications at the same time as the export. You can perform read operations.

  • entryIdOrder: This option enables to read data from an Oracle Berkeley DB Java Edition (JE) back end in the order with which they are stored logically at the database level.

    The benefits of this option are as follows:

    • This option provides better performance compare to the diskOrder algorithm, if the database entirely fits into the database cache.

    • It does not temporarily extract any memory from the database cache.

    • You can run this algorithm even when the server is running and if you access it for modifications at the same time as the export.

  • auto: This option automatically selects diskOrder in an offline mode when the server is down or entryIdOrder in an online mode when the server is running.

-I, --includeFilter filter

Include the entries identified by the specified search filter in the export. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple filters. If this option is provided, any entry in the back end that does not match the filter is skipped.

-l, --ldifFile filename

Export the data to the specified LDIF file. This is a required option.

For online exports, the root for relative paths is the instance root, rather than the current working directory. So, for example, a path of exports/ldif.ldif here refers to instance-root/exports/ldif.ldif.

-n, --backendID backendID

Specify the back end ID of the data to be exported. The available back ends in the directory server can be determined using the list-backends command. This is a required option.

-O, --excludeOperational

Exclude operational attributes in the export.

--wrapColumn column

Specify the column at which to wrap long lines when writing to the LDIF file. A value of 0 indicates that the data should not be wrapped.

A.3.5.4 Task Back End Connection Options

Running an online export requires access to the tasks back end. Access to the tasks back end is provided over SSL through the administration connector. These connection options are used when the export runs online.

-D, --bindDN bindDN

Use the bind DN to authenticate to the directory server. This option is used when performing simple authentication and is not required if SASL authentication is to be used. The default value for this option is cn=Directory Manager.

-h, --hostname hostname

Contact the directory server on the specified hostname or IP address. If this option is not provided, a default of localhost is used.

-j, --bindPasswordFile filename

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the directory server.

-K, --keyStorePath path

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path.

-N, --certNickname nickname

Use the specified certificate for client authentication.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the specified options for SASL authentication.

-p, --port port

Contact the directory server at the specified administration port. If this option is not provided, a default administration port of 4444 is used.

-P, --trustStorePath path

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used.

-U, --trustStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this).

-X, --trustAll

Trust all server SSL certificates that the directory server presents. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate.

A.3.5.5 Task Scheduling Options

These options are used when you specify that the export should run as a scheduled task.

--completionNotify emailAddress

Specify the email address of a recipient to be notified when the task completes. This option can be specified more than once in a single command.

--dependency taskId

Specify the ID of a task upon which this task depends. A task does not start executing until all of its dependencies have completed execution.

--errorNotify emailAddress

Specify the email address of a recipient to be notified if an error occurs when this task executes. This option can be specified more than once in a single command.

--failedDependencyAction action

Specify the action that this task will take if one of its dependent tasks fails. The value must be one of PROCESS, CANCEL, or DISABLE. If no value is specified, the default action is CANCEL.

--recurringTask schedulePattern

Indicates that the task is recurring and will be scheduled according to the schedulePattern, expressed as a crontab(5) compatible time and date pattern.

-t, --start startTime

Indicates the date and time at which the operation starts when scheduled as a directory server task expressed in the format YYYYMMDDhhmmss. A value of 0 schedules the task for immediate execution. When this option is specified, the operation is scheduled to start at the specified time after which the command exits immediately.

A.3.5.6 Command Input/Output Options

--noPropertiesFile

Indicates that a properties file is not used to obtain the default command-line options.

--propertiesFilePath path

Specify the path to the properties file that contains the default command-line options.

A.3.5.7 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to run an export.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.3.5.8 Examples

The following examples show how to use the directory server commands.

Example A-83 Performing an Offline Export

The following example exports the userRoot back end, starting at the base DN specified by the -b option. The command exports the data to an LDIF file specified by -l. The directory server must be stopped before performing an offline export.

$ stop-ds
$ export-ldif -b dc=example,dc=com -n userRoot -l /usr/tmp/export.ldif
[17/Oct/2008:12:24:33 +0200] category=JEB severity=NOTICE msgID=8847447 
msg=Exported 102 entries and skipped 0 in 0 seconds (average rate 159.4/sec)

Example A-84 Performing an Online Export

An export is automatically run online if you specify any of the task back end connection options. Because an online export contacts the server over SSL, you must specify how to trust the SSL server certificate. This examples uses the -X option to trust all certificates.

$ export-ldif -h localhost -p 4444 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j /path/pwd-file -X \
  --includeBranch "dc=example,dc=com" --backendID userRoot \
  --ldifFile /usr/tmp/export.ldif

Example A-85 Scheduling an Export

You can schedule an export to run at some future date by using the -t or --start option to specify the start time. Like a regular online export, a scheduled export contacts the task back end of a running directory server and the relevant task back end connection options must be specified.

This example schedules an export of the userRoot back end to start on December 24.

$ export-ldif -h localhost -p 4444 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j /path/pwd-file -X \
  --includeBranch "dc=example,dc=com" --backendID userRoot \
  --ldifFile /usr/tmp/export.ldif --start 20081224121500
Export task 2008101712361910 scheduled to start Dec 24, 2008 12:15:00 PM SAST

You can view a scheduled task by using the manage-tasks command. For more information, see Section 14.4, "Configuring Commands As Tasks."

A.3.5.9 Exit Codes

  • Offline mode. An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. A non-zero exit code indicates that an error occurred during processing.

  • Online mode. If -t or --start is specified, an exit code of 0 indicates that the task was created successfully. A nonzero exit code indicates that an error occurred when the task was created. If -t or --start is not specified, the exit codes are the same as those specified for offline mode.

A.3.5.10 Using a Properties File

The directory server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the export-ldif command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. For more information, see Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands."

A.3.6 import-ldif

The import-ldif command populates an Oracle Berkeley DB Java Edition (JE) back end with data that is read from an LDIF file.

A.3.6.1 Synopsis

import-ldif options

A.3.6.2 Description

The import-ldif command populates an Oracle Berkeley DB Java Edition (JE) back end with data that is read from an LDIF file, or with data generated based on a MakeLDIF template. In most cases, using import-ldif is significantly faster than adding entries by using ldapmodify. Note that a complete import to an entire JE back end has better performance than a partial import to a branch of the JE back end.

The import-ldif command can run the import immediately or can schedule the import to run at a specified date and time. For more information, see Section 14.4, "Configuring Commands As Tasks."

You can run the import-ldif command in online or offline mode.

  • Online mode. In online mode, import-ldif contacts a running directory server instance over SSL, through the administration connector, and registers an import task. The command runs in online mode automatically if you specify any of the task back end connection options. For more information about the administration connector, see Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server."

  • Offline mode. In offline mode, import-ldif accesses the database directly rather than through a directory server instance. To perform an offline import, the directory server must be stopped.

A.3.6.3 Options

The import-ldif command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -b baseDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --includeBranch baseDN).

-a, --append

Append the imported data to the data that already exists in the back end, rather than clearing the back end before starting the import.

-A, --templateFile filename

Specify the path to a MakeLDIF template to generate the import data.

-b, --includeBranch branchDN

Specify the base DN for a branch or subtree of the data that should be included in the import. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple base DNs. If this option is provided, entries contained in the import source that are not at or below one of the provided base DNs are skipped. Any existing entries above the provided base DNs are preserved.

-B, --excludeBranch branchDN

Specify the base DN branch or subtree that should be omitted from the import. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple base DNs. If this option is provided, entries contained in the import source that are at or below one of the base DNs are skipped. Note that the use of the --excludeBranch option takes precedence over the --includeBranch option. If an entry is at or below a DN contained in both the included and excluded lists, it is omitted from the import. This capability makes it possible to include data for only a part of a branch (for example, all entries below dc=example,dc=com except those below ou=People,dc=example,dc=com).

-c, --isCompressed

Specify that the LDIF import file is compressed. The file should be compressed using the GZIP format, which is the format used by the --compressLDIF option of the export-ldif command.

--countRejects

Return the number of rejected entries during import. If the number of rejected entries is between 0 and 255, that number is returned. If the number of rejected entries is greater than 255, the command returns the value 255. For example, if you run import-ldif with the --countRejects option and get 16 rejected entries, the command returns the value 16. If you run import-ldif and get 300 rejected entries, the command returns the value 255. Note that this option is not supported for online imports.

-e, --excludeAttribute attribute

Specify the name of an attribute that should be excluded from the import. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple attributes.

-E, --excludeFilter filter

Specify the search filter to identify entries that should be excluded from the import. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple filters. If this option is provided, any entry in the import source that matches the filter is skipped. Note that the --excludeFilter option takes precedence over the --includeFilter option. If an entry matches filters in both the include and exclude filters, the entry is skipped during import.

-F, --clearBackend

Confirm deletion of all existing entries for all base DNs in the specified back end when importing without the --append option. This only applies when importing a multiple base DN back end specified by the back end ID. This option is implied for back ends with only one base DN.

-i, --includeAttribute attribute

Specify the attributes that should be included in the import. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple attributes. If this option is used, attributes not listed in this set are omitted from the entries that are imported.

-I, --includeFilter filter

Specify the search filter to identify entries that should be included in the import. This option can be used multiple times to specify multiple filters. If this option is provided, any entry in the import source that does not match the results of the filter is skipped.

-l, --ldifFile filename

Read the LDIF file located at the specified path. This option must not be used in conjunction with --templateFile.

For online imports, the root for relative paths is the instance root, rather than the current working directory. So, for example, a path of imports/ldif.ldif here refers to instance-root/imports/ldif.ldif.

-n, --backendID backendID

Specify the ID of the back end into which the data should be imported. To display the available back ends in the server, use the list-backends command.

-O, --overwrite

Overwrite the specified skip file or reject file, if it already exists. If this option is not provided, any skipped or rejected entries are appended to their corresponding files rather than overwriting them. This option is only applicable if the --rejectFile or --skipFile options are provided.

-r, --replaceExisting

Replace existing data with the content from the import. If this option is not provided, existing entries are not overwritten. This is only applicable if the --append option has also been provided.

-R, --rejectFile filename

Use the specified file to hold any rejected entries during the import. Rejected entries occur if entries are not compliant with the default schema. A comment is included before the entry indicating the reason that it was rejected. If this option is not provided, no reject file is written.

-s, --randomSeed seed

Use the specified seed number for the random number generator when generating entries from a MakeLDIF template. Seeding the random number generator with a particular value can help to ensure that the same template and random seed always generate exactly the same data.

--skipDNValidation

Perform limited parental DN validation during a later part of the LDIF import. If this option is specified, no duplicate DN checking is done. Do not use this option if you are not certain that your LDIF import file is correct.

--skipFile filename

Use the specified file to identify entries that were skipped during the import. Skipped entries occur if entries cannot be placed under any specified base DN during an import or if the --excludeBranch, --excludeAttribute, or --excludeFilter option is used.

-S, --skipSchemaValidation

Do not perform any schema validation on the entries as they are imported. This option can provide improved import performance, but should only be used if you are certain that the import data is valid.

--threadCount count

Specify the number of threads that are used to read the LDIF file. If this option is not specified, a default of two threads per CPU is used.

You can use this option to increase the number of threads if you are importing particularly large LDIF files, but you should not use the option unless you are certain of the resulting impact on performance.

--tmpDirectory directory

Use the specified directory for index scratch files created during the import. If no directory is specified, the default INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/import-tmp is used.

A.3.6.4 Task Back End Connection Options

Running an online import requires access to the tasks back end. Access to the tasks back end is provided over SSL through the administration connector. These connection options are used when the import runs online.

-D, --bindDN bindDN

Use the bind DN to authenticate to the directory server. This option is used when performing simple authentication and is not required if SASL authentication is to be used. The default value for this option is cn=Directory Manager.

-h, --hostname hostname

Contact the directory server on the specified hostname or IP address. If this option is not provided, a default of localhost is used.

-j, --bindPasswordFile filename

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the directory server.

-K, --keyStorePath path

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path.

-N, --certNickname nickname

Use the specified certificate for client authentication.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the specified options for SASL authentication.

-p, --port port

Contact the directory server at the specified administration port. If this option is not provided, a default administration port of 6664 is used.

-P, --trustStorePath path

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used.

-U, --trustStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this).

-X, --trustAll

Trust all server SSL certificates that the directory server presents. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate.

A.3.6.5 Task Scheduling Options

These options are used when you specify that the import should run as a scheduled task.

--completionNotify emailAddress

Specify the email address of a recipient to be notified when the task completes. This option can be specified more than once in a single command.

--dependency taskId

Specify the ID of a task upon which this task depends. A task does not start executing until all of its dependencies have completed execution.

--errorNotify emailAddress

Specify the email address of a recipient to be notified if an error occurs when this task executes. This option can be specified more than once in a single command.

--failedDependencyAction action

--recurringTask schedulePattern

Indicates that the task is recurring and will be scheduled according to the schedulePattern, expressed as a crontab(5) compatible time and date pattern.

-t, --start startTime

Indicates the date and time at which the operation starts when scheduled as a directory server task expressed in the format YYYYMMDDhhmmss. A value of 0 schedules the task for immediate execution. When this option is specified, the operation is scheduled to start at the specified time after which the command exits immediately.

A.3.6.6 Command Input/Output Options

--noPropertiesFile

Indicates that a properties file is not used to obtain the default command-line options.

--propertiesFilePath path

Specify the path to the properties file that contains the default command-line options.

-Q, --quiet

Run in quiet mode. Using quiet mode, no output is generated unless a significant error occurs during the import process.

-d, --debug

Use debug mode (verbose). Using debug mode, all advanced or debug messages are output.

A.3.6.7 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to run an import.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.3.6.8 Examples

The following examples show how to use the directory server commands.

Example A-86 Running an Offline Import

This example imports an LDIF file to the userRoot back end. The LDIF file path must be an absolute path on all platforms. The directory server must be stopped before running an offline import.

$ stop-ds
$ import-ldif -b dc=example,dc=com -n userRoot -l /usr/tmp/Example.ldif

Example A-87 Importing Part of an LDIF File Offline

This example imports part of an LDIF file to the userRoot back end. The import includes the base DN dc=example,dc=com but excludes the branch ou=people. Existing entries are replaced (-r) and information about any rejected entries are written to /usr/tmp/rejects.ldif. The LDIF file path must be an absolute path on all platforms. The directory server must be stopped before running an offline import.

$ stop-ds
$ import-ldif -b dc=example,dc=com -B "ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" \
  -l /usr/tmp/Example.ldif -n userRoot -r -R /usr/tmp/rejects.ldif

Example A-88 Importing Data From a MakeLDIF Template

This example imports sample data from a MakeLDIF template to the userRoot back end. The random seed (-s) determines the randomness of the data. The directory server must be stopped before running an offline import.

$ stop-ds
$ import-ldif -n userRoot -A example.template -s 0

Example A-89 Importing User Attributes Only

This example imports an LDIF file to the userRoot back end. Only user attributes are imported, specified by -i "*". The LDIF file path must be an absolute path on all platforms. On some systems, you might be required to enclose the asterisk in quotation marks ("*") or to escape the asterisk using a character appropriate to your shell. The directory server must be stopped before running an offline import.

$ stop-ds
$ import-ldif -b dc=example,dc=com -n userRoot -l /usr/tmp/Example.ldif -i "*"

Example A-90 Importing User Attributes and Excluding an Attribute

This example imports an LDIF file to the userRoot back end. All user attributes are imported, specified by -i "*", but the roomnumber attribute is excluded. The LDIF file path must be an absolute path on all platforms. On some systems, you might be required to enclose the asterisk in quotation marks ("*") or to escape the asterisk using a character appropriate to your shell. The directory server must be stopped before running an offline import.

$ stop-ds
$ import-ldif -b dc=example,dc=com -n userRoot -l /usr/tmp/Example.ldif \
  -i "*" -e "roomnumber"

Example A-91 Importing Operational Attributes Only

This example imports an LDIF file to the userRoot back end. Only operational attributes are imported, specified by -i "+". The LDIF file path must be an absolute path on all platforms. On some systems, you might be required to enclose the plus sign in quotation marks ("+") or to escape the plus sign using a character appropriate to your shell. The directory server must be stopped before running an offline import.

$ stop-ds
$ import-ldif -b dc=example,dc=com -n userRoot -l /usr/tmp/Example.ldif -i "+"

Example A-92 Importing Selected User and Operational Attributes

This example imports an LDIF file to the userRoot back end. Only the uid, cn, sn, dc, and creatorsname attributes are imported. The LDIF file path must be an absolute path on all platforms. The directory server must be stopped before running an offline import.

$ stop-ds
$ import-ldif -b dc=example,dc=com -n userRoot -l /var/tmp/Example.ldif \
  -i "uid" -i "cn" -i "sn" -i "dc" -i "creatorsname"

Example A-93 Running an Online Import

An import is automatically run online if you specify any of the task back end connection options. Because an online import contacts the server over SSL, you must specify how to trust the SSL server certificate. This examples uses the -X option to trust all certificates.

$ import-ldif -h localhost -p 6664 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j /path/pwd-file \
  -X -b dc=example,dc=com -n userRoot -l /usr/tmp/Example.ldif

Example A-94 Scheduling an Import

You can schedule an import to run at some future date by using the -t or --start option to specify the start time. Like a regular online import, a scheduled import contacts the task back end of a running directory server and the relevant task back end connection options must be specified.

This example schedules an import to the userRoot back end to start on December 24.

$ import-ldif -h localhost -p 6664 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j /path/pwd-file \
  -X -b dc=example,dc=com -n userRoot -l /usr/tmp/Example.ldif \
  --start 20081224121500
Import task 2008101712361910 scheduled to start Dec 24, 2008 12:15:00 PM SAST

You can view a scheduled task by using the manage-tasks command. For more information, see Section 14.4, "Configuring Commands As Tasks."

A.3.6.9 Exit Codes

  • Offline mode. An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. A non-zero exit code indicates that an error occurred during processing.

  • Online mode. If -t or --start is specified, an exit code of 0 indicates that the task was created successfully. A nonzero exit code indicates that an error occurred when the task was created. If -t or --start is not specified, the exit codes are the same as those specified for offline mode.

A.3.6.10 Using a Properties File

The directory server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the export-ldif command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. For more information, see Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands."

A.3.7 ldif-diff

The ldif-diff command identifies the differences between two LDIF files.

A.3.7.1 Synopsis

ldif-diff options

A.3.7.2 Description

The ldif-diff command can be used to identify the differences between two LDIF files. The resulting output can be displayed on the terminal or saved to an output file. The resulting output contains all of the information necessary for someone to reverse any changes if necessary. For modify operations, only sets of add and delete change types are used, not the replace change type. For delete operations, the contents of the entry that has been removed are included in the changes displayed in the form of comments.

This command was designed to work on small data sets. It is only suitable in cases in which both the source and target data sets can fit entirely in memory at the same time. It is not intended for use on large data sets that cannot fit in available memory.

Note:

The ldif-diff command is not intended for large files. Running the ldif-diff command on LDIF files over a certain size (around 600 Kbytes on Windows systems, larger on UNIX systems) might result in a memory error similar to the following:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space.

A.3.7.3 Options

The ldif-diff command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -o outputFile) or its long form equivalent (for example, --outputLDIF outputFile).

-a, --ignoreAttrs file

Specify a file containing a list of attributes to ignore when computing the difference

--checkSchema

Consider the syntax of the attributes as defined in the schema to make the value comparison. The specified LDIF files must be conform to the server schema.

-e, --ignoreEntries file

Specify a file containing a list of entries (DNs) to ignore when computing the difference

-o, --outputLDIF outputLDIF

Specify the path to the output file to record the changes between the source and target LDIF data. If this is not provided, then the change information will be written to standard output.

-O, --overwriteExisting

Overwrite the output file specified with the --outputLDIF option. This option indicates that if the specified output file already exists that the file should be overwritten rather than appending to it. The option is only applicable if --outputLDIF is used.

-s, --sourceLDIF sourceLDIF

Specify the path to the source LDIF file, which contains the original data with no changes applied. This option is required.

-S, --singleValueChanges

Run in Single Value Change mode, in which each modify operation is broken into a separate modification per attribute value. For example, if a single modification adds five values to an attribute, the changes appear in the output as five separate modifications, each adding one attribute.

-t, --targetLDIF targetLDIF

Specify the path to the target LDIF file that contains the differences from the source LDIF. This option is required.

-?, -H, --help

Display command usage information and exit without attempting to perform any additional processing.

-V, --version

Display the directory server version information and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.3.7.4 Examples

The following examples show how to use the ldif-diff command.

Example A-95 Comparing Two LDIF files and Sending the Differences to Standard Output

The following command compares a source file (-s) with a target file (-t) and outputs the differences. For Windows platforms, specify the paths for the source file (for example, -s \temp\quentin.ldif) and the target file (for example, -t \temp\quentin.ldif):

$ ldif-diff -s /usr/local/quentin.ldif -t /usr/local/quentinr.ldif

Example A-96 Comparing Two LDIF files and Sending the Differences to a File

The following command compares a source file (-s) with a target file (-t) and sends the output to a file (-o). For Windows platforms, specify the paths for the source file (for example, -s \temp\quentin.ldif) and the target file (for example, -t \temp\quentin.ldif):

$ ldif-diff -s /usr/local/quentin.ldif -t /usr/local/quentinr.ldif \
  -o output.ldif

A.3.7.5 Exit Codes

A.3.8 ldifmodify

The ldifmodify command makes changes to the contents of an LDIF file.

A.3.8.1 Synopsis

ldifmodify options

A.3.8.2 Description

The ldifmodify command can be used to make changes to the contents of an LDIF file. Although similar to the ldapmodify command, the ldifmodify command does not connect to the directory server but rather operates locally on the LDIF file. The command also does not accept change information on standard input. It must read all changes from a file.

To make it possible to operate on very large LDIF files with limited amounts of memory, the following limitations will be enforced on the types of changes that can be made:

  • No modify DNs. Modify DN operations are not supported. Only add, delete, and modify operations will be allowed.

  • No concurrent modify or delete operations. It is not possible to modify or delete an entry that is to be added during the course of processing.

A.3.8.3 Options

All options (with the exception of --help and --version) are required. The ldifmodify command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -m changeFile) or its long form equivalent (for example, --changesLDIF changeFile).

-m, --changesLDIF changeFile

Specify the path to the file containing the changes to apply. The contents of this file must be in LDIF change format.

-s, --sourceLDIF sourceFile

Specify the path to the source LDIF file, which contains the data to be updated.

-t, --targetLDIF targetFile

Specify the path to the target LDIF file, which will consist of the data from the source LDIF with all of the specified changes applied.

-?, -H, --help

Display command usage information and exit without attempting to perform any additional processing.

-V, --version

Display the directory server version information and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.3.8.4 Examples

The following examples show how to use the ldifmodify command.

Example A-97 Modifying an LDIF File

Suppose that the source file is as follows:

dn: uid=qcubbins,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
objectclass: top
objectclass: person
objectclass: organizationalPerson
objectclass: inetOrgPerson
uid: qcubbins
givenName: Quentin
sn: Cubbins
cn: Quentin Cubbins
mail: qcubbins@example.com
userPassword: qcubbins
description: This is Quentin's description.

And suppose that the update (change) file is as follows:

## Add new telephone number for Quentin Cubbins
dn: uid=qcubbins,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
add: telephoneNumber
telephoneNumber: 512-401-1241

The following command updates a source file (-s) with changes listed in a modify file (-m) and outputs to a target file (-t). For Windows platforms, use the file paths for the modify file (for example, -m \temp\update.ldif), the source file (for example, -s \temp\quentin.ldif), and the target file (for example, -s \temp\quentin_updated.ldif):

$ ldifmodify -m /usr/local/update.ldif -s /usr/local/quentin.ldif \
-t /usr/local/quentin_updated.ldif

The updated file is as follows:

dn: uid=qcubbins,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
objectClass: person
objectClass: top
objectClass: organizationalPerson
sn: Cubbins
userPassword: qcubbins

A.3.9 ldifsearch

The ldifsearch command performs searches in an LDIF file.

A.3.9.1 Synopsis

ldifsearch [options]

A.3.9.2 Description

The ldifsearch command can be used to perform searches in an LDIF file. Although similar to the ldapsearch command, the ldifsearch command does not perform any LDAP communication with the directory server but rather operates locally on the LDIF file.

A.3.9.3 Options

The ldifsearch command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -b baseDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --baseDN baseDN).

-b, -baseDN baseDN

Specify the base DN to use for the search operation. Multiple base DNs can be provided by using this option multiple times. If multiple values are provided, then an entry will be examined if it is within the scope of any of the search bases. If no search base is provided, then any entry contained in the LDIF files will be considered in the scope of the search.

-f, --filterFile filterFile

Specify the path to a file containing one or more filters to use when processing the search operation. If there are to be multiple filters, then the file should be structured with one filter per line. If this option is used, then any trailing options will be treated as separate attributes. Otherwise, the first trailing option must be the search filter.

-l, -ldifFile ldifFile

Specify the path to the LDIF file containing the data to be searched. Multiple LDIF files can be specified by providing this option multiple times. This option is required.

-o, -outputFile outputFile

Specify the path to the output file that contains the entries matching the provided search criteria. If this option is not provided, the matching entries will be written to standard output.

-O, --overwriteExisting

Overwrite the output file specified with the --outputFile option. This option indicates that if the specified output file already exists that the file should be overwritten rather than appending the data to existing data. This is only applicable if the --outputFile option is used.

-s, -searchScope searchScope

Specify the scope of the search operation. Its value must be one of the following:

  • base Examine only the entry specified by the --baseDN option.

  • one Examine only the entry specified by the --baseDN option and its immediate children.

  • sub or subordinate Examine the entry specified by the --baseDN option and its subtree.

Default value sub if the option is not specified.

-t, --timeLimit numSeconds

Indicate the maximum length of time in seconds that should be spent performing the searches. After this length of time has elapsed, the search ends.

-z, --sizeLimit sizeLimit

Set the maximum number of matching entries that the directory server should return to the client. If this is not provided, then there will be no maximum requested by the client. Note that the directory server can enforce a lower size limit than the one requested by the client.

-T, --dontWrap

Do not wrap long lines when displaying matching entries. If this option is not provided, long lines will be wrapped (in a manner compatible with the LDIF specification) to fit on an 80-column terminal.

-?, -H, --help

Display command usage information and exit without attempting to perform any additional processing.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server.

A.3.9.4 Examples

The following examples show how to use the ldifsearch command.

Example A-98 Searching an LDIF File

The following command specifies the base DN (-b) and searches an LDIF file (-l) for an entry and returns its result to the screen if any entries match the search filter cn=Sam Carter. For Windows platforms, use the path where the LDIF file resides (for example, -l \temp\Example.ldif.

$ ldifsearch -b dc=example,dc=com -l /usr/local/Example.ldif "(cn=Sam Carter)"

dn: uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com

Example A-99 Searching an LDIF File by Using a Filter File

Suppose that the file, filter.ldif, which contains the following search filter:

(&(ou=Accounting)(l=Cupertino))

The following command searches the LDIF file for entries that match the filter in the search filter file and outputs the results in an output file. The command specifies the base DN (-b) and searches the LDIF file (-l) using the search filter file (-f) and outputs the results in a file (-o). For Windows platforms, use the file paths for the LDIF file (for example, -l \temp\Example.ldif), the filter file (for example, -f \temp\filter.ldif), and the output file (for example, -o \temp\results.ldif):

$ ldifsearch -b dc=example,dc=com -l /usr/local/Example.ldif -f /usr/local/filter.ldif \
-o /home/local/results.ldif

A.3.10.1 Synopsis

list-backends [options]

A.3.10.2 Description

The list-backends command can be used to obtain information about the back ends defined in a directory server instance. Back ends are responsible for providing access to the server database.

The list-backends command has three modes of operation:

  • No options. When invoked with no options, display the back-end IDs for all back ends configured in the server, along with the base DNs for those back ends.

  • With backend ID. When used with the --backendID, list all of the base DNs for the back end with the specified back-end ID.

  • With baseDN. When used with the --baseDN option, list the back-end ID of the back end that should be used to hold the entry with the given DN and also indicate whether that DN is one of the configured base DNs for that back end.

A.3.10.3 Options

The following are available for use but are not required. The list-backends command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -b baseDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --baseDN baseDN).

A.3.10.4 Command Options

-b, --baseDN baseDN Specify the base DN from which the list-backends command should list the back-end ID. The option also indicates whether the specified DN is a baseDN for that back end.

-n, --backendID backendID Specify the back-end ID from which the command should display the associated base DN. This option can be used multiple times to display the base DNs for multiple back ends.

A.3.10.5 General Options

-?, -H, --help Display the command usage information and exit immediately without taking any other action.

-V, --version Display the directory server version information and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

-o, --ldifFile ldifFile

Specify the path to the LDIF file to which the generated data should be written. This is a required option.

-s, --randomSeed seed

Specify the integer value that should be used to seed the random number generator. If a random seed is provided, then generating data based on the same template file with the same seed will always generate exactly the same LDIF output. If no seed is provided, then the same template file will likely generate different LDIF output each time it is used.

-t, --templateFile templateFile

Specify the path to the template file that describes the data to be generated. This is a required option. You must specify an absolute path to the template file.

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to run the command.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server.

A.3.11.4 Examples

The following examples show how to use the make-ldif command.

Example A-103 Creating a Sample LDIF File

The following command creates an LDIF file using the template (-t), writes to an output file (-o), and specifies the random seed (-s). For Windows platforms, enter the file paths to your output LDIF file (for example, -o path\to\Example.ldif) and to your template file (for example, -t INSTANCE_DIR\OUD\config\MakeLDIF\example.template).

The example.template file is located in the INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/config/MakeLDIF directory.

A.3.12 manage-account

The manage-account command manages user account information, primarily related to password policy state details.

A.3.12.1 Synopsis

manage-account subcommands options

A.3.12.2 Description

The manage-account command manages user account information, primarily related to password policy state details. The command interacts with the Password Policy State extended operation, which returns account, login, and password information for a user. Although the Password Policy State extended operation allows multiple operations per use, the manage-account command can run only one operation at a time. Users must have the password-reset privilege to use the Password Policy State extended operation.

Note that all time values are returned in generalized time format. All duration values are returned in seconds.

The manage-account command connects to the server over SSL through the administration connector (described in Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server").

A.3.12.10 Related Commands

Section A.3.16, "verify-index"

A.3.13 rebuild-index

The rebuild-index command rebuilds a directory server index.

A.3.13.1 Synopsis

rebuild-index options

A.3.13.2 Description

The rebuild-index command is used to rebuild directory server indexes. Indexes are files that contain lists of values, where each value is associated with a list of entry identifiers to suffixes in the directory server database. When the directory server processes a search request, it searches the database using the list of entry identifiers in the indexes, thus speeding up the search. If indexes did not exist, the directory server would have to look up each entry in the database, which dramatically degrades performance.

The rebuild-index command is useful in the following cases:

  • When the index-entry-limit property of an index changes

  • When a new index is created

The rebuild-index command can be run with the server online. However, the backend database is unavailable while rebuild-index is running. Also, the rebuild-index command usually runs faster with the server offline, especially if the --rebuildAll option is specified.

Note:

As time progresses, the list of entry identifiers becomes unordered. As this happens, the performance of the rebuild-index command gradually decreases.

If you can avoid reindexing large databases, you should do so. Otherwise, if the performance of the rebuild-index command is severely compromised, reimport the database, to start with a fresh, ordered list of entry identifiers.

A.3.13.3 Options

The rebuild-index command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -b baseDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --baseDN baseDN).

A.3.13.4 Command Options

-b, --baseDN baseDN

Specify the base DN of a back end that supports indexing. The rebuild operation is performed on indexes within the scope of the given base DN.

-i, --index index

Specify the name of the indexes to rebuild. For an attribute index, this is simply an attribute name. At least one index must be specified for rebuild.

--rebuildAll

Rebuild all indexes that are contained in the back end that is specified by the base DN. This option not only re-indexes all attribute indexes but also the dn2id system index, any extensible and VLV indexes, and the dn2uri index. The rebuildAll option cannot be used with the -i option.

--tmpDirectory

Specify the location of a temporary work directory for scratch index files. The default temporary work directory is INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/import-tmp.

A.3.13.5 Task Back End Connection Options

Rebuilding an index online requires access to the tasks back end. Access to the tasks back end is provided over SSL through the administration connector. These connection options are used when the rebuild runs online.

-D, --bindDN bindDN

Use the bind DN to authenticate to the directory server. This option is used when performing simple authentication and is not required if SASL authentication is used. The default value for this option is cn=Directory Manager.

-h, --hostname hostname

Contact the directory server on the specified hostname or IP address. If this option is not provided, a default of localhost is used.

-j, --bindPasswordFile filename

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the directory server.

-K, --keyStorePath path

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path.

-N, --certNickname nickname

Use the specified certificate for client authentication.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the specified options for SASL authentication.

-p, --port port

Contact the directory server at the specified administration port. If this option is not provided, the default administration port of 4444 is used.

-P, --trustStorePath path

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used.

-U, --trustStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this).

-X, --trustAll

Trust all server SSL certificates that the directory server presents. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate.

A.3.13.6 Task Scheduling Options

These options are used when you specify that the index should be rebuilt as a scheduled task.

--completionNotify emailAddress

Specify the email address of a recipient to be notified when the task completes. This option can be specified more than once in a single command.

--dependency taskId

Specify the ID of a task upon which this task depends. A task does not start executing until all of its dependencies have completed execution.

--errorNotify emailAddress

Specify the email address of a recipient to be notified if an error occurs when this task executes. This option can be specified more than once in a single command.

--failedDependencyAction action

Specify the action that this task will take if one of its dependent tasks fails. The value must be one of PROCESS, CANCEL, or DISABLE. If no value is specified, the default action is CANCEL.

--recurringTask schedulePattern

Indicates that the task is recurring and will be scheduled according to the schedulePattern, expressed as a crontab(5) compatible time and date pattern.

-t, --start startTime

Indicates the date and time at which the operation starts when scheduled as a directory server task expressed in the format YYYYMMDDhhmmss. A value of 0 schedules the task for immediate execution. When this option is specified, the operation is scheduled to start at the specified time after which the command exits immediately.

A.3.13.7 Utility Input/Output Options

--propertiesFilePath propertiesFilePath

Path to the file containing default property values used for command line

--noPropertiesFile

No properties file will be used to get default command line argument values.

-v, --verbose

Use verbose mode.

A.3.13.8 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to stop or restart the directory server.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.3.13.9 Examples

The following examples show how to use the rebuild-index command.

Example A-108 Rebuilding an Index

First, display a list of indexes by using the dsconfig command as follows:

$ dsconfig -h localhost -p 4444 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j /path/pwd-file -X \
  -n list-local-db-indexes --element-name userRoot

Local DB Index    : Type    : index-type
------------------:---------:--------------------
aci               : generic : presence
cn                : generic : equality, substring
displayName       : generic : equality, substring
ds-sync-conflict  : generic : equality
ds-sync-hist      : generic : ordering
entryUUID         : generic : equality
givenName         : generic : equality, substring
mail              : generic : equality, substring
member            : generic : equality
objectClass       : generic : equality
orclMTTenantGuid  : generic : equality
orclMTTenantUName : generic : equality, substring
orclMTUid         : generic : equality

telephoneNumber   : generic : equality, substring
uid               : generic : equality
uniqueMember      : generic : equality

The following command rebuilds indexes (-i) with a base DN (-b).

Because this command runs offline, the directory server must be stopped before you run it.

$ rebuild-index -b dc=example,dc=com -i uid -i mail
[15/Dec/2011:15:28:01 +0100] category=JEB severity=NOTICE msgID=8847497 
  msg=Rebuild of index(es) uid started with 202 total entries to process
...
[15/Dec/2011:15:28:02 +0100] category=JEB severity=NOTICE msgID=8847493 
  msg=Rebuild complete. Processed 202 entries in 1 seconds (average rate 135.2/sec)

Example A-109 Rebuilding All Indexes

This example uses the --rebuildAll option to rebuild all indexes.

$ rebuild-index -b "dc=example,dc=com" --rebuildAll

Example A-110 Rebuilding Extensible Indexes

You can rebuild an extensible index in any of three ways:

  • Rebuild all indexes by specifying the --rebuildAll option.

  • Rebuild the attribute index on which the extensible index is based, by specifying the -i option. For example, -i cn.

    All indexes based on this attribute are rebuilt, including any extensible indexes that are associated with the attribute.

  • Rebuild a specific extensible index by specifying it with the -i option. For example, -i cn.es.lte or -i sn.en.sub.

A.3.13.10 Exit Codes

An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. An exit code of 1 indicates that an error occurred during processing.

A.3.14 restore

The restore command restores a backup of a directory server back end.

A.3.14.1 Synopsis

restore options

A.3.14.2 Description

The restore command restores a backup of a directory server back end. Only one back end can be restored at a time. You can use this command to perform a restore operation immediately, or to schedule a restore to run at a later time. For more information, see Section 14.4, "Configuring Commands As Tasks."

You can restore a back end when the server is offline or schedule a task when the server is online to restore a back end at a later stage. If the server is online, the restore command connects to the server over SSL through the administration connector. For more information about the administration connector, see Section 14.3, "Managing Administration Traffic to the Server."

A.3.14.3 Options

The restore command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -I backupID) or its long form equivalent (for example, --backupID backupID).

-d, --backupDirectory path

Restore using the directory that contains the backup archive. This directory must exist and must contain a backup descriptor file and one or more backups for a given back end. The backup descriptor file is read to obtain information about the available backups and the options used to create them. This is a required option.

-I, --backupID backupID

Specify the backup ID of the backup to be restored. If this option is not provided, the latest backup contained in the backup directory is restored.

-l, --listBackups

Display information about the available backups contained in the backup directory. This option causes the command to exit without performing any restore.

-n, --dry-run

Verify that the specified backup is valid (that is, ensure that it appears to be a valid archive, and that any hash, signature matches its contents, or both). This option does not actually attempt to restore the backup.

A.3.14.4 Task Back End Connection Options

Running an online restore requires access to the tasks back end. Access to the tasks back end is provided over SSL through the administration connector. These connection options are used when the restore runs online.

-D, --bindDN bindDN

Use the bind DN to authenticate to the directory server. This option is used when performing simple authentication and is not required if SASL authentication is to be used. The default value for this option is cn=Directory Manager.

-h, --hostname hostname

Contact the directory server on the specified hostname or IP address. If this option is not provided, a default of localhost is used.

-j, --bindPasswordFile filename

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the directory server.

-K, --keyStorePath path

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path.

-N, --certNickname nickname

Use the specified certificate for client authentication.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the specified options for SASL Authentication.

-p, --port port

Contact the directory server at the specified administration port. If this option is not provided, a default administration port of 4444 is used.

-P, --trustStorePath path

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used.

-U, --trustStorePasswordFile filename

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this).

-X, --trustAll

Trust all server SSL certificates that the directory server presents. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate.

A.3.14.5 Task Scheduling Options

--completionNotify emailAddress

Specify the email address of a recipient to be notified when the task completes. This option can be specified more than once in a single command.

--dependency taskId

Specify the ID of a task upon which this task depends. A task does not start executing until all of its dependencies have completed execution.

--errorNotify emailAddress

Specify the email address of a recipient to be notified if an error occurs when this task executes. This option can be specified more than once in a single command.

--failedDependencyAction action

Specify the action this task will take should one if its dependent tasks fail. The value must be one of PROCESS,CANCEL,DISABLE. If not specified, the backup defaults to CANCEL.

--recurringTask schedulePattern

Indicates that the task is recurring and will be scheduled according to the schedulePattern, expressed as a crontab(5) compatible time and date pattern.

-t, --start startTime

Indicates the date and time at which the operation starts when scheduled as a directory server task expressed in the format YYYYMMDDhhmmss. A value of 0 causes the task to be scheduled for immediate execution. When this option is specified, the operation is scheduled to start at the specified time after which this command exits immediately.

A.3.14.6 Command Input/Output Options

--noPropertiesFile

Indicate that a properties file will not be used to get the default command-line options.

--propertiesFilePath path

Specify the path to the properties file that contains the default command-line options.

A.3.14.7 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to stop or restart the server.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.3.14.8 Examples

The following examples show how to use the restore command.

Example A-111 Displaying the Backup Information

The following command lists (-l) the backup information in the backup descriptor file (backup.info) for the directory server. You can use this option to display backup information whether the server is running or stopped.

$ restore -l -d /tmp/backup/userRoot
Backup ID:          20081016050258Z
Backup Date:        16/Oct/2008:09:30:00 +0200
Is Incremental:     false
Is Compressed:      true
Is Encrypted:       true
Has Unsigned Hash:  false
Has Signed Hash:    true
Dependent Upon:     none

Example A-112 Restoring a Backup

The following command restores a back end from the backup directory. You can only restore one back end at a time. The server must be stopped before you run this command.

$ stop-ds
$ restore -d /tmp/backup/userRoot
[16/Oct/2008:10:32:52 +0200] category=JEB severity=NOTICE msgID=8847445 
msg=Restored: 00000000.jdb (size 321954)

Example A-113 Restoring an Encrypted Backup

Restoring a hashed or encrypted backup requires a connection to an online server instance, over SSL through the administration connector. When you restore an encrypted backup, you must therefore specify the connection details, including the host, administration port, bind DN and bind password. You must also specify the certificate details for the SSL connection.

The following command restores an encrypted, hashed backup. The self signed certificate is trusted using the -X (--trustAll) option.

$ restore -h localhost -p 4444 -D "cn=directory manager" -j /path/pwd-file -X \
  -d /tmp/backup/userRoot/
Restore task 2008101610403710 scheduled to start immediately

 message="Restored: 00000000.jdb (size 331434)"
[16/Oct/2008:10:40:40 +0200] severity="NOTICE" msgCount=2 msgID=8847402 
 message="The database backend userRoot containing 102 entries has started"
Restore task 2008101610403710 has been successfully completed

Example A-114 Scheduling a Restore

Scheduling a restore requires online access to the tasks back end. Access to this back end is provided over SSL through the administration connector. When you schedule a restore, you must therefore specify the connection details, including the host, administration port, bind DN and bind password. You must also specify the certificate details for the SSL connection.

The following command schedules a task to restore the userRoot back end at a specific start time by using the --start option. The command sends a completion and error notification to admin@example.com. The self signed certificate is trusted using the -X (--trustAll) option.

You can view this scheduled task by using the manage-tasks command. For more information, see Section 14.4, "Configuring Commands As Tasks." You must ensure that the server is running prior to the scheduled restore date and time.

$ restore -h localhost -p 4444 -D "cn=directory manager" -j /path/pwd-file -X \
  -d /backup/userRoot --start 20081025121500 --completionNotify admin@example.com \
  --errorNotify admin@example.com
Restore task 2008101610442610 scheduled to start Oct 25, 2008 12:15:00 PM SAST

A.3.14.9 Exit Codes

An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. An exit code of 1 indicates that an error occurred during processing.

A.3.14.10 Using a Properties File

The directory server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the restore command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. For more information, see Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands."

A.3.15 split-ldif

The split-ldif command splits an LDIF file into multiple LDIF files according to a given distribution workflow element. The generated LDIF files are used to populate the partitions of a distribution deployment.

A.3.15.1 Synopsis

split-ldif options

A.3.15.2 Description

The split-ldif command splits an LDIF file into multiple LDIF files according to a given distribution workflow element. The data in the LDIF file is split based on the attributes indicated and based on the distribution type defined. The generated LDIF files are then used to populate the partitions. For each partition the split-ldif command creates a partition file as follows:

outputDirectory/outputFilenamePrefix-partitionID.ldif

Sometimes, the distribution algorithm is not able to determine the partition to which an entry should be sent, either because the entry does not contain all the parameters required by the algorithm, or the required parameters are present but they match no partition. In such a scenario, the output is written to an error file.

All the entries that do not have all the required parameters are written to the following error file:

outputDirectory/outputFilenamePrefix-missingrequired-param.ldif

All the entries that have the required parameters but whose parameters do not match any configured partition are written to the following error file:

outputDirectory/outputFilenamePrefix-partition-not-found.ldif

However, for the global index initialization you use the directory containing the files compatible with the global index format. The split-ldif command creates one directory per attribute to be indexed, and each directory contains files for initializing the global index.

The global index catalog is populated using the files in the directory created, which do not have a LDIF format. For more information, see Section A.2.7, "gicadm."

A.3.15.3 Options

The split-ldif command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -i ldifFile) or its long form equivalent (for example, --ldifFile ldifFile).

-i, --ldifFile ldifFile

The name of the LDIF file to split. Global Index Options and Split Options can be used to customize the behavior.

-l, --listDistributionNames

Lists the enabled distribution workflow elements from the directory server's configuration.

Note:

The -l, --listDistributionNames option lists only the enabled distributions, because you cannot use a disabled distribution to split an ldif file.

A.3.15.4 Global Index Options

-x, --index attributeTypeName

Generates an index file to be used for the global index catalog, for the listed attribute type.

-c, --onlyCatalog

Generates only the index file.

A.3.15.5 Split Options

-d, --distributionName distributionName

The name of the distribution workflow element to split the data.

-p, --forcePartitionId partitionId

Generates an index file where all the entries are distributed to the same single partition having the listed partitionId.

-o, --outputDirectory outputDirectory

The directory where output LDIF files will be generated.

-O, --outputFilenamePrefix outputFilePrefix

The prefix of the filename to generate (will contain the partition ID and the.ldif extension).

-f, --force

Overwrites generated files that may already exist from previous use.

A.3.15.6 General Options

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server.

-e, --help-examples

Display examples of the usage.

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to stop or restart the directory server.

A.3.15.7 Examples

Example A-115 Using split-ldif to Populate a Global Index with One Indexed Attribute

The following command uses an existing database file (-i) which it splits into several files, based on the distribution information already defined in the proxy deployment. The command defines the distribution workflow element name (-d), the database file (-i) to be split, and the attribute to be indexed in the global index files (-x). Indicating -f will overwrite any existing LDIF files.

You must have deployed a proxy instance with distribution before running this command.

$ split-ldif -d "distrib-we" -i database.ldif -x employeenumber -f

Assuming, for this example, that your distribution algorithm was numeric, and that you set two partitions with boundaries 1-1000 and 1000-2000. When you run the command above, the following directory and LDIF files are created:

database-1.ldif

This file contains all the entries from database with employee numbers from 1-999, which will be used to populate partition 1.

database-2.ldif

This file contains all the entries from database with employee numbers from 1000-1999, which will be used to populate partition 2.

catalog\employeenumber

This directory contains the global index files for the employee number attribute.

Example A-116 Using split-ldif to Populate a Global Index with Several Indexed Attributes

The following command uses an existing database file (-i) which it splits into several files, based on the distribution information already defined in the proxy deployment. The command defines the distribution workflow element name (-d), the database file (-i) to be split, and the attributes to be indexed in the global index files (-x). Indicating -f will overwrite any existing LDIF files.

You must have deployed a proxy instance with distribution before running this command.

$ split-ldif -d "distrib-we" -i database.ldif \

-x employeenumber -x uid -f 

Assuming, for this example, that your distribution algorithm was numeric, and that you set two partitions with boundaries 1-50000 and 50000-100001. When you run the command above, the following LDIF files and directories are created:

  • database-1.ldif - This file contains all the entries from database with employee numbers from 1-49999, which will be used to populate partition 1.

  • database-2.ldif - This file contains all the entries from database with employee numbers from 50000-100000, which will be used to populate partition 2.

  • catalog\employeenumber - This directory contains the global index files for the employee number attribute.

  • catalog\uid - This directory contains the global index files for the uid attribute.

A.3.16 verify-index

The verify-index command validates directory index data.

A.3.16.1 Synopsis

verify-index options

A.3.16.2 Description

The verify-index command is used to check the consistency between the index and entry data within the directory server database. This command also provides information about the number of index keys that have reached the index entry limit.

The command checks the following information:

  • All entries are properly indexed

  • All index data reference entries exist

  • Data matches the corresponding index data

At the present time, this command is only available for a directory server back end that uses Oracle Berkeley DB Java Edition to store its information. None of the other back end types currently available maintain on-disk indexes. Therefore, there is no need to have any command that can verify index consistency.

Directory administrators can use this command when the directory server is running or stopped. Note, however, that using verify-index when the server is running impacts the overall performance of the directory server as well as the command. For example, on a very busy online server, the verify-index command could take significantly longer to process compared to running the command on an offline, or stopped, directory server.

To use this command, the --baseDN option must be used to specify the base DN of the back end below which to perform the validation.

A.3.16.3 Options

The verify-index command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -b baseDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --baseDN baseDN).

A.3.16.4 Command Options

-b, --baseDN baseDN

Specify the base DN for which to perform the verification. The provided value must be a base DN for a back end based on the Berkeley DB Java Edition. This is a required option, and only one base DN may be provided.

-c, --clean

Verify that an index is "clean", which means that all of the entry IDs in all of the index keys refer to entries that actually exist and match the criteria for that index key. If this option is provided, then exactly one index should be specified using the --index option. If this option is not given, then the verification process will clean the id2entry database (which is a mapping of each entry ID to the actual data for that entry) and ensure that all of the entry contents are properly indexed.

--countErrors

Count the number of errors found during the verification and return that value as the exit code. Values greater than 255 will be returned as 255 due to exit code restrictions.

-i, --index index

Specify the name of an index for which to perform the verification. If the --clean option is provided, then this argument must be provided exactly once. Otherwise, it may be specified zero or more times. If the option is not provided, then all indexes will be checked. For an attribute index, the index name should be the name of the attribute, and an index must be configured for that attribute in the associated back end. You can also specify the following internal indexes, which are used internally on the server:

dn2id - A mapping of entry DNs to their corresponding entry IDs.

id2children - A mapping of the entry ID for an entry to the entry IDs of its immediate children.

id2subtree - A mapping of the entry ID for an entry to the entry IDs of all of its subordinates.

-v, --verbose

Use verbose mode.

A.3.16.5 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to stop or restart the server.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.

A.3.16.6 Examples

The following examples show how to use the verify-index command.

A.4 LDAP Client Commands

The following sections describe the LDAP client utilities:

A.4.1 ldapcompare

The ldapcompare command compares LDAP entries.

A.4.1.1 Synopsis

ldapcompare options

A.4.1.2 Description

The ldapcompare command is used to issue LDAP compare requests to the directory server. Compare requests can be used to determine whether a given entry or set of entries have a particular attribute-value combination. The only information returned from a successful compare operation is an indication as to whether the comparison evaluated to true or false. No other information about the entry is provided.

The syntax of the ldapcompare tool on the command-line can take any of these forms:

ldapcompare [ options ] attribute:value [ "targetDN" ... | -f DNfile]
ldapcompare [ options ] attribute::base64value [ "targetDN" ... | -f DNfile ]
ldapcompare [ options ] attribute:fileURL [ "targetDN" ... | -f DNfile ]

where

  • options are the command-line options, described in the following section.

  • attribute is the name of the attribute type, followed by one of the three ways to specify its comparative value. The attribute type name and value string should be enclosed in single quotes (") for the shell.

  • targetDN is the distinguished name (DN) or list of DNs in which to search for the given attribute and compare its value.

  • DNfile is a file with a list of DNs, one per line, to search for the given attribute and compare its value.

A.4.1.3 Options

The ldapcompare command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -D bindDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --bindDN bindDN).

A.4.1.4 Command Options

--assertionFilter filter

Perform a search using the LDAP assertion control (as defined in RFC 4528) to indicate that the operation should only be processed if the assertion contained in the provided filter is true.

-c, --continueOnError

Continue processing even if an error occurs. This applies when multiple entry DNs have been given either as trailing options or in a file specified with the --filename option. If an error occurs while processing a compare request, then the client will continue with the next entry DN if the --continueOnError option has been provided, or it will exit with an error if it was not provided.

-f, --filename filename

Specify the path to a file that contains one or more filters to use when processing the search operation. If there are to be multiple entry DNs, then the file should be structured with one DN per line. All comparisons will be performed using the same connection to the directory server in the order that they appear in the file. If this option is not provided, at least one entry DN must follow the attribute-value assertion. If this option is used, the only trailing option required is the attribute-value assertion. The --filename option takes precedence over any DNs provided as additional command-line options. Additional DNs are simply ignored.

-J, --control controloid[criticality[:value|::b64value|:<fileurl]]

Perform a search with the specified control in search requests sent to the directory server. This option makes it possible to include arbitrary request controls that the client cannot directly support. The value for this option must be in the form:

oid[:criticality[:value|::b64value|:<fileurl]]

The elements of this value include:

  • oid Use the OID for the control. For certain types of controls, a text name may be used instead of the numeric OID (for search operations, this includes managedsait for the manage DSA IT control). This element is required. Human-readable names can be used in place of the OID to reference controls that do not require values using the -J or control option. These OID names are the following:

    • accountusable or accountusability Use in place of the Account Usability Request Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.8 (no value)

    • authzid or authorizationidentity Use in place of the Authorization Identity Request Control OID: 2.16.840.1.113730.3.4.16 (no value)

    • effectiverights Use in place of the Get Effective Rights Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2 (value = authorization ID)

    • managedsait Use in place of the Manage DSA IT Control OID: 2.16.840.1.113730.3.4.2 (no value)

    • noop or no-op Use in place of the LDAP No-op Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.4203.1.10.2 (no value)

    • pwpolicy or password policy Use in place of the Password Policy Request OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.8.5.1 (no value)

    • subtreedelete or treedelete Use in place of the Subtree Delete Request Control OID: 1.2.840.113556.1.4.805 (no value)

  • criticality If true, the control should be marked critical (meaning that the directory server should not process the operation unless it can meet the requirements of this control). If false, the control should not be marked critical. If this subcommand is not provided, then the control is not marked critical.

  • value Specifies the value for the control. This form should only be used if the value can be expressed as a string. It must not be used in conjunction with either the ::b64value or :< fileurl forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

  • b64value Specifies the value for the control in base64-encoded form. This subcommand must not be used in conjunction with either the :value or :< fileurl forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

  • fileurl Specifies a URL that references a file from which the value of the control should be taken. It must not be used in conjunction with either the :value or ::b64value forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

For example, the value 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2:true:dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com will include a critical control with an OID of 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2, marked as critical (true), and with a string value for the authorization ID dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com. Or, you can use the OID names: effectiverights:true:dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com.

-n, --dry-run

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the directory server. The option is used for simple authentication, as well as for password-based SASL mechanisms such as CRAM-MD5, DIGEST-MD5, and PLAIN. It is not required if no authentication is to be performed. This option must not be used in conjunction with --bindPassword.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-K, --keyStorePath keyStorePath

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path for secure communication when using the SSL or the StartTLS extended operation. This option should only be necessary if the client needs to present a certificate to the directory server, for example, when using SASL EXTERNAL authentication.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-N, --certNickName certNickName

Use the specified certificate for certificate-based client authentication.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the specified option when performing SASL authentication. Multiple SASL options can be provided by using this option multiple times, once for each option.

-p, --port port

Contact the directory server at the specified port. If this option is not provided, then a default port of 389 will be used.

-P, --trustStorePath trustStorePath

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path for secure communication when using the SSL or the StartTLS extended operation. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-q, --useStartTLS

Use the StartTLS Extended Operation when communicating with the directory server. This option must not be used in conjunction with --useSSL.

-r, --useSASLExternal

Use the SASL EXTERNAL mechanism for authentication, which attempts to identify the client by using an SSL certificate that it presents to the directory server. If this option is used, then the --keyStorePath option must also be provided to specify the path to the client keystore and either the --useSSL or the --useStartTLS option must be used to establish a secure communication channel with the server.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

--trustStorePassword trustStorePassword

Use the password needed to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (which most trust stores do not require). This option must not be used in conjunction with --trustStorePasswordFile.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile keyStorePasswordFile

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used. This option must not be used in conjunction with --keyStorePassword.

-U, --trustStorePasswordFile trustStorePasswordFile

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this). This option must not be used in conjunction with --trustStorePassword.

-V, --ldapVersion version

Set the LDAP protocol version that the client should use when communicating with the directory server. The value must be either 2 (for LDAPv2 communication) or 3 (for LDAPv3). If this option is not provided, then the client will use LDAPv3.

-w, --bindPassword bindPassword

Use the bind password when authenticating to the directory server. This option can be used for simple authentication as well as password-based SASL mechanisms. This option must not be used in conjunction with --bindPasswordFile. To prompt for the password, type -w -.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-W, --keyStorePassword keyStorePassword

Use the password needed to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used. This option must not be used in conjunction with --keyStorePasswordFile.

-X, --trustAll

Trust any certificate that the directory server might present during SSL or StartTLS negotiation. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate.

-Z, --useSSL

Use Secure Sockets Layer when communicating with the directory server. If SSL is to be used, then the --port option should be used to specify the server's secure port.

A.4.1.6 Command Input/Output Options

A.4.1.8 Examples

The following examples show how to use the ldapcompare command.

Example A-119 Comparing an Entity for Group Membership

The following command specifies the host name (-h) that is connected to port 1389 (-p) and verifies if an employee (uid=scarter) is a member of a group (cn=Accounting Managers).

$ ldapcompare -h hostname -p 1389 \
"uniquemember:uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com" \
"cn=Accounting Managers,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com"

Comparing type uniquemember with value uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com 
in entry cn=Accounting Managers,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com 
Compare operation returned true for entry
cn=Accounting Managers,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com

Example A-120 Comparing an Attribute Value to an Entry

The following command specifies the hostname (-h) that is connected to port 1389 (-p) and verifies if an attribute (ou=Accounting) is present in an entity's (cn=Sam Carter) record.

$ ldapcompare -h hostname -p 1389 "ou:Accounting" \
"uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com"

Comparing type ou with value Accounting in entry uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
Compare operation returned true for entry uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com

Example A-121 Using ldapcompare with Server Authentication

The following command uses server authentication, specifies the host name (-h), SSL port (-p), base DN (-b), the bind DN (-D), the bind password (-w), trust store file path (-P), and checks if the attribute is present in the entry. For Windows platforms, use the path where your trust store file resides (for example, -P \temp\certs\cert.db).

$ ldapcompare -h hostname -p 1636 -D "cn=Directory Manager" \
-j pwd-file -P /home/kwinters/certs/cert.db \
'givenname:Sam' "uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com"

Comparing type givenname with value Sam in entry uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
Compare operation returned true for entry uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com

Example A-122 Using ldapcompare with Client Authentication

The following command uses client authentication with the compare. The command uses SSL (-Z) with the SSL port (-p), specifies the trust store file path (-P), the certificate nickname (-N), the keystore file path (-K), the keystore password (-W) and checks if the entity's given name givenname=Sam is present in the entry. For Windows platforms, use the path where your trust store file resides (for example, -P \temp\certs\cert.db) and where the path where your keystore file resides (-K \temp\security\key.db).

$ ldapcompare -h hostname -p 1636 -Z \
-P /home/kwinters/security/cert.db -N "kwcert" \
-K /home/kwinters/security/key.db -W KeyPassword \
'givenname:Sam' "uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com"

Comparing type givenname with value Sam in entry uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
Compare operation returned true for entry uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com

A.4.1.9 Exit Codes

An exit code of 6 indicates that the comparison is successful. An exit code of 5 indicates that the comparison is unsuccessful. Any other exit code indicates that an error occurred during processing.

A.4.1.10 Using a CLI Properties File

The directory server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the ldapcompare command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. For more information, see Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands."

The following options can be stored in a properties file:

  • assertionFilter

  • bindDN

  • bindPassword

  • bindPasswordFile

  • certNickname

  • continueOnError

  • control

  • dry-run

  • filename

  • hostname

  • keyStorePassword

  • keyStorePasswordFile

  • keyStorePath

  • ldapVersion

  • port

  • saslOption

  • trustAll

  • trustStorePassword

  • trustStorePasswordFile

  • trustStorePath

  • useSASLExternal

  • useSSL

  • useStartTLS

  • verbose

Entries in the properties file have the following format:

toolname.propertyname=propertyvalue

For example:

ldapcompare.ldapport=12345

A.4.2 ldapdelete

The ldapdelete command issues LDAP delete requests to the directory server in order to remove entries.

A.4.2.1 Synopsis

ldapdelete [option] [DN]

A.4.2.2 Description

The ldapdelete command issues LDAP delete requests to the directory server in order to remove entries. Unless the --filename option is given, an entry DN must be given as the only trailing option to specify which entry should be removed.

A.4.2.3 Before You Begin

Many UNIX or Linux operating systems provide an installed version of common LDAP client commands, such as ldapsearch, ldapmodify, and ldapdelete in the /usr/bin directory. You can check if a version is on your system by entering the command: which ldapdelete. If the command returns a value (seen below), you will need to update your $PATH to the INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/bin directory or create an alias to the directory server instance.

$ which ldapdelete (UNIX/Linux)
/usr/bin/ldapdelete

A.4.2.4 Options

The ldapdelete command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -D bindDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --bindDN bindDN).

A.4.2.5 Command Options

-c, --continueOnError

Continue processing even if an error occurs. This operation applies when multiple entry DNs have been given either as trailing options or in a file specified with the --filename option. If an error occurs while processing a compare request, then the client will continue with the next entry DN if the --continueOnError option has been provided, or it will exit with an error if that option was not provided.

-f, --filename filename

Specify the path to a file that contains one or more filters to use when processing the search operation. If there are multiple entry DNs, then the file should be structured with one DN per line. If this option is used, then do not add any trailing options. The DN of the entry to remove should be the only trailing option.

-J, --control controloid[:criticality[:value|::b64value|:<fileurl]]

-c -f /usr/local/delete.ldif

Example A-125 Deleting Entries by Using Server Authentication

The following command uses server authentication to delete an entry. The command specifies the host name (-h), SSL port (-p), bind DN (-D), the bind password (-w), trust store file path (-P), and LDIF file (-f) that contains the deletes. If an error occurs, the command continues (-c) to the next search item. For Windows platforms, use the path where the deletion file resides (for example, -f \temp\delete.ldif) and the file where the trust store password resides (for example, -P \temp\certs\cert.db):

$ ldapdelete -h hostname -p 1636 -c -f /usr/local/delete.ldif \
-D "cn=Directory Manager" -j pwd-file \
-P /home/kwinters/certs/cert.db

Example A-126 Deleting Entries by Using Client Authentication

The following command uses client authentication to perform a delete option. The command uses SSL (-Z) with the SSL port (-p), specifies the trust store file path (-P), the certificate nickname (-N), the keystore file path (-K), the keystore password (-W) and the LDIF file (-f) that contains the deletions. If an error occurs, the command continues (-c) to the next search item. For Windows platforms, use the path where the deletion file resides (for example, -f \temp\delete.ldif), the file where the trust store password resides (for example, -P \temp\certs\cert.db), and the file where the keystore password resides (for example, -K \temp\security\key.db).

$ ldapdelete -h hostname -p 1636 -c -f /usr/local/delete.ldif \
-Z -P /home/kwinters/security/cert.db -N "kwcert" \
-K /home/kwinters/security/key.db -W keypassword

A.4.2.10 Exit Codes

An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. A nonzero exit code indicates that an error occurred during processing.

A.4.2.11 Using a CLI Properties File

The directory server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the ldapdelete command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. See Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands" for more information.

The following options can be stored in a properties file:

  • bindDN

  • bindPassword

  • bindPasswordFile

  • certNickname

  • continueOnError

  • control

  • deleteSubtree

  • dry-run

  • filename

  • hostname

  • keyStorePassword

  • keyStorePasswordFile

  • keyStorePath

  • ldapVersion

  • port

  • saslOption

    SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance

  • trustAll

  • trustStorePassword

  • trustStorePasswordFile

  • trustStorePath

  • useSASLExternal

    SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

  • useSSL

  • useStartTLS

  • verbose

Entries in the properties file have the following format:

toolname.propertyname=propertyvalue

For example:

ldapdelete.ldapport=12345

A.4.2.12 Location

A.4.3 ldapmodify

The ldapmodify command modifies directory entries.

A.4.3.1 Synopsis

ldapmodify [options] [filter] [attributes]

A.4.3.2 Description

The ldapmodify command can be used to perform LDAP modify, add, delete, and modify DN operations in the directory server. The operations to perform in the directory server should be specified in LDIF change format, as described in RFC 2849 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2849.txt). This change syntax uses the changetype keyword to indicate the type of change.

An add change record is straightforward, because it is a complete entry in LDIF form with a changetype value of add. For example:

dn: uid=john.doe,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: add
objectClass: top
objectClass: person
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
uid: john.doe
givenName: John
sn: Doe
cn: John Doe
mail: john.doe@example.com
userPassword: password

A delete change record is even simpler than an add change record. The add record consists of a line with the entry DN followed by another line with a changetype of delete. For example:

dn: uid=john.doe,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: delete

The modify change record is the most complex operation, because of the number of variants. The modify change records all start with the entry DN followed by a changetype of modify. The next line consists of either add, delete, or replace followed by an attribute name indicating what modification will be and to which attribute. The change record may optionally be followed by one or more lines containing the attribute name followed by a value to use for the modification (that is, a value to add to that attribute, remove from that attribute, or use to replace the existing set of values). Multiple attribute changes can be made to an entry in the same modify operation by separating changes with a line containing only a dash, starting the next line with a new add, delete, or replace tag followed by a colon and the next attribute name, and then setting of values for that attribute. For example:

dn: uid=john.doe,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
replace: description
description: This is the new description for John Doe
-
add: mailAlternateAddress
mailAlternateAddress: jdoe@example.com

Modify DN change records should always contain the newRDN and deleteOldRDN elements and can optionally contain the newSuperior component to specify a new parent for the target entry. For example:

dn: uid=john.doe,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: moddn
newRDN: uid=jdoe
deleteOldRDN: 1

If no arguments are provided to the ldapmodify command, it attempts to interact with a Directory Server instance using an unauthenticated connection using the loopback address on port 389, and information about the changes to request will be read from standard input. This is unlikely to succeed, as it will almost certainly be necessary to at least provide arguments that will be used to specify how to authenticate to the server.

A.4.3.3 Before You Begin

Many UNIX and Linux operating systems provide an installed version of common LDAP client commands, such as ldapsearch, ldapmodify, and ldapdelete in the /usr/bin directory. You can check if a version is on your system by entering the command: which ldapmodify. If the command returns a value (seen below), you will need to update your $PATH to INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/bin or create an alias to the directory server instance.

$ which ldapmodify (Unix/Linux)
/usr/bin/ldapmodify

A.4.3.4 Options

The ldapmodify command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -D bindDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --bindDN bindDN).

A.4.3.5 Command Options

-a, --defaultAdd

Add entries. Treat records with no changetype element as an add request. This option can be used to add entries from a standard LDIF file that does not contain information in the LDIF change format.

--assertionFilter filter

Perform a search using the LDAP assertion control (as defined in RFC 4528 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4528.txt)) to indicate that the operation should only be processed if the assertion contained in the provided filter is true.

-c, --continueOnError

Continue processing even if an error occurs. Use this option when using multiple search filters in a file --filename. If an error occurs during processing, the directory server will continue processing the next search filter. Otherwise the command will exit before all searches have been completed.

-f, --filename filename

Read modifications from the specified file containing one or more filters to use during the modify operation. The records in the LDIF file should be in the LDIF change format (that is, including the changetype element). If the LDIF file only contains entries that should be added to the directory server, then the file can be used with the --defaultAdd option even if the entries do not have a changetype element. The provided file can contain multiple changes as long as there is at least one blank line between change records.

If this option is not provided, then the ldapmodify command will attempt to read change information from standard input. This makes it possible to have the change records either provided interactively by the target user on the command line or piped into the command from some other source.

-J, --control controloid[:criticality[:value|::b64value|:<fileurl]]

Perform a search with the specified control in search requests sent to the directory server. This option makes it possible to include arbitrary request controls that the client cannot directly support. The value for this option must be in the form:

oid[: criticality[:value|::b64value|:<fileurl]]

The elements of this value include:

  • oid. Use the OID for the control. For certain types of controls, a text name may be used instead of the numeric OID (for search operations, this includes managedsait for the manage DSA IT control). This element is required. Human-readable names can be used in place of the OID to reference controls that do not require values using the -J or control option. These OID names are the following:

    accountusable or accountusability — Use in place of the Account Usability Request Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.8 (no value).

    authzid or authorizationidentity — Use in place of the Authorization Identity Request Control OID: 2.16.840.1.113730.3.4.16 (no value).

    effectiverights — Use in place of the Get Effective Rights Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2 (value = authorization ID).

    managedsait — Use in place of the Manage DSA IT Control OID: 2.16.840.1.113730.3.4.2 (no value).

    noop or no-op — Use in place of the LDAP No-op Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.4203.1.10.2 (no value).

    pwpolicy or password policy — Use in place of the Password Policy Request Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.8.5.1 (no value).

    subtreedelete or treedelete — Use in place of the Subtree Delete Request Control OID: 1.2.840.113556.1.4.805 (no value).

  • criticality. If true, the control should be marked critical (meaning that the directory server should not process the operation unless it can meet the requirements of this control). If false, the control should not be marked critical. If this subcommand is not provided, then the control is not marked critical.

  • value. Specifies the value for the control. This form should only be used if the value can be expressed as a string. It must not be used in conjunction with either the::b64value or :< fileurl forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

  • b64value. Specifies the value for the control in base64-encoded form. This subcommand must not be used in conjunction with either the :value or :< fileurl forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

  • fileurl. Specifies a URL that references a file from which the value of the control should be taken. It must not be used in conjunction with either the :value or ::b64value forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

    For example, the value 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2:true:dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com will include a critical control with an OID of 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2, marked as critical (true), and with a string value for the authorization ID dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com. Or, you can use the OID names: effectiverights:true:dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com.

-n, --dry-run

Run in no-op mode. That is, report what should happen but do not actually perform any searches or communicate with the server in any way.

--postReadAttributes attrList

Use the LDAP ReadEntry Post-read Control (as defined in RFC 4527 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4527.txt)) to indicate that the directory server should return a copy of the target entry as it was immediately after the update. This is only applicable for add, modify, and modify DN operations. The value for this option should be a comma-separated list of the attributes to include in the representation of the pre-read entry. The same conventions apply to this list as for the list of attributes to return in the ldapsearch command (that is, it is possible to use * for all user attributes, + for all operational attributes, @ocname for all attributes in the specified objectclass, and so on). If no attributes are specified (signified with empty quotes), then all user attributes will be returned.

--preReadAttributes attrList

Use the LDAP ReadEntry Pre-read Control (as defined in RFC 4527 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4527.txt)) to indicate that the directory server should return a copy of the target entry as it was immediately before the update. This is only applicable for delete, modify, and modify DN operations. The value for this option should be a comma-separated list of the attributes to include in the representation of the pre-read entry. The same conventions apply to this list as for the list of attributes to return in the ldapsearch command (that is, it is possible to use * for all user attributes, + for all operational attributes, @ocname for all attributes in the specified objectclass, and so on). If no attributes are specified (signified with empty quotes), then all user attributes will be returned.

-Y, --proxyAs authzID

Use the Proxied Authorization Control to specify the identity of the user for whom the operations should be performed. This will use version 2 of the Proxied Authorization Control as defined in RFC 4370 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4370.txt). The value of the option should be an authorization ID in the form dn: followed by the DN of the target user (for example, dn:uid=john.doe,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com), or u: followed by the user name (for example, u:john.doe). If this option is not provided, then proxied authorization will not be used.

A.4.3.6 LDAP Connection Options

-D, --bindDN bindDN

Use the bind DN to authenticate to the directory server. This option is used when performing simple authentication. The default value for this option is cn=Directory Manager. It is not required when using SASL authentication or if no authentication is to be performed.

-E, --reportAuthzID

Use the authorization identity request control (as defined in RFC 3829 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3829.txt)) in the bind request so that the directory server returns the corresponding authorization ID to the client when authentication has completed. (The line containing the authorization ID will be prefixed with a # character, making it a comment if the output is to be interpreted as an LDIF.)

-h, --hostname address

Contact the directory server on the specified host name or IP address. If it is not provided, then a default address of localhost will be used.

-j, --bindPasswordFile bindPasswordFile

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the directory server. The option is used for simple authentication, as well as for password-based SASL mechanisms such as CRAM-MD5, DIGEST-MD5, and PLAIN. It is not required if no authentication is to be performed. This option must not be used in conjunction with --bindPassword.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-K, --keyStorePath keyStorePath

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path for secure communication when using the SSL or the StartTLS extended operation. This option should only be necessary if the client needs to present a certificate to the directory server, for example, when using SASL EXTERNAL authentication.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-N, --certNickName certNickName

Use the specified certificate for certificate-based client authentication.

-o, --saslOption name = value

Use the specified option when performing SASL authentication. Multiple SASL options can be provided by using this option multiple times, once for each option. For information about using SASL authentication in clients, see Section 20.7, "Configuring SASL Authentication."

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-p, --port port

Contact the directory server at the specified port. If this option is not provided, then a default port of 389 will be used.

-P, --trustStorePath trustStorePath

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path for secure communication when using the SSL or the StartTLS extended operation. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-q, --useStartTLS

Use the StartTLS extended operation when communicating with the directory server. This option must not be used in conjunction with --useSSL.

-r, --useSASLExternal

Use the SASL EXTERNAL mechanism for authentication, which attempts to identify the client by using an SSL certificate that it presents to the directory server. If this option is used, then the --keyStorePath option must also be provided to specify the path to the client keystore and either the --useSSL or the --useStartTLS option must be used to establish a secure communication channel with the server.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

--trustStorePassword trustStorePassword

Use the password needed to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (which most trust stores do not require). This option must not be used in conjunction with --trustStorePasswordFile.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile keyStorePasswordFile

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used. This option must not be used in conjunction with --keyStorePassword.

-U, --trustStorePasswordFile trustStorePasswordFile

Use the password in the specified file to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this). This option must not be used in conjunction with --trustStorePassword.

-V, --ldapVersion version

Set the LDAP protocol version that the client should use when communicating with the directory server. The value must be either 2 (for LDAPv2 communication) or 3 (for LDAPv3). If this option is not provided, then the client will use LDAPv3.

-w, --bindPassword bindPassword

Use the bind password when authenticating to the directory server. This option can be used for simple authentication as well as password-based SASL mechanisms. This option must not be used in conjunction with --bindPasswordFile. To prompt for the password, type -w -.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-W, --keyStorePassword keyStorePassword

Use the password needed to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used. This option must not be used in conjunction with --keyStorePasswordFile.

-X, --trustAll

Trust any certificate that the directory server might present during SSL or StartTLS negotiation. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate.

-Z, --useSSL

Use SSL when communicating with the directory server. If SSL is to be used, then the --port option should be used to specify the server's secure port.

A.4.3.7 Command Input/Output Options

--noPropertiesFile

Indicate that a properties file will not be used to get the default command-line options.

--propertiesFilePath propertiesFilePath

Specify the path to the properties file that contains the default command-line options.

-v, --verbose

Run in verbose mode, displaying process and diagnostic information on standard output.

A.4.3.8 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to run the command.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server.

A.4.3.9 Examples

The following examples show how to use the ldapmodify command.

Example A-127 Adding an Entry

The following LDIF file contains an entry for an employee:

dn: uid=Marcia Garza,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
cn: Marcia Garza
sn: Garza
givenName: Marcia
objectClass: person
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
objectClass: top
objectClass: organizationalPerson
ou: Accounting
ou: People

The following command specifies the host name (-h), port (-p), bind DN (-D), bind password (-w), reads the modifications from the file (-f) and adds the entry (-a) to the database. For Windows platforms, specify the path to your LDIF file (for example, -f \temp\add_entry.ldif).

$ ldapmodify -h hostname -p 1389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j pwd-file \
-a -f /usr/local/add_entry.ldif

Example A-128 Adding an Attribute to an Entry

The following LDIF file modifies an entry by adding a telephonenumber attribute:

dn: uid=Marcia Garza,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
add: telephonenumber
telephonenumber: +1 408 555 8283

The following command specifies the host name (-h), port (-p), bind DN (-D), bind password (-w), reads the modifications from the file (-f) and adds an attribute to the entry. For Windows platforms, specify the path to your LDIF file (for example,

-f \temp\add_attribute.ldif).

$ ldapmodify -h hostname -p 1389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j pwd-file \
-f /usr/local/add_attribute.ldif

Example A-129 Modifying the Value of an Attribute

The following LDIF file modifies the value of the telephonenumber attribute:

dn: uid=Marcia Garza,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
replace: telephonenumber
telephonenumber: +1 408 555 6456

The following command specifies the hostname (-h), port (-p), bind DN (-D), bind password (-w), reads the modifications from the file (-f) and modifies the attribute's value. For Windows-platforms, specify the path to your LDIF file (for example, -f \temp\modify_attribute.ldif).

$ ldapmodify -h hostname -p 1389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j pwd-file \
-f /usr/local/modify_attribute.ldif

Example A-130 Modifying Multiple Attributes

The following LDIF file contains multiple modifications to an entry:

dn: uid=Marcia Garza,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
replace: telephonenumber
telephonenumber: +1 408 555 6465
-
add: facsimiletelephonenumber
facsimiletelephonenumber: +1 408 222 4444
-
add: l
l: Sunnyvale

The following command specifies the host name (-h), port (-p), bind DN (-D), bind password (-w), reads the modifications from the file (-f) and processes the changes to the database. For Windows platforms, specify the path to your LDIF file (for example,-f \temp\mod_attribute.ldif):

$ ldapmodify -h hostname -p 1389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j pwd-file \
-f /usr/local/mod_attribute.ldif

Example A-131 Deleting an Attribute from the Command Line

The following command specifies the host name (-h), port (-p), bind DN (-D), bind password (-w), and deletes the facsimiletelephonenumber attribute for an entry. Because the command is run from the command line, enter the dn, changetype, modification operation, and then press Control-D (UNIX, Linux) or Control-Z (Windows) to process it:

$ ldapmodify -h hostname -p 1389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j pwd-file
dn: uid=Marcia Garza,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
delete: facsimiletelephonenumber
(Press Control-D for Unix, Linux)
(Press Control-Z for Windows)

Example A-132 Deleting an Entry from the Command Line

The following command specifies the hostname (-h), port (-p), bind DN (-D), bind password (-w), and deletes the entry. Because the command is run from the command line, enter the dn, changetype, and then press Control-D (UNIX, Linux) or Control-Z (Windows) to process it:

$ ldapmodify -h hostname -p 1389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j pwd-file
dn: uid=Marcia Garza,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: delete
(Press Control-D for Unix, Linux)
(Press Control-Z for Windows)

Example A-133 Using ldapmodify with Server Authentication

The following command uses the -P SSL option to perform a modify with server authentication. The command specifies the host name (-h), SSL port (-p), base DN (-b), the bind DN (-D), the bind password (-w), trust store file path (-P), and LDIF file (-f) that contains the changes. For Windows platforms, specify the paths for the modification file (for example, -f \temp\myldif.ldif) and trust store file (for example, -P \temp\certs\cert.db):

$ ldapmodify -h hostname -p 1636 -f /home/local/myldif.ldif \
-D "cn=Directory Manager" -j pwd-file \
-P /home/scarter/certs/cert.db

Example A-134 Using ldapmodify with Client Authentication

The following command uses the -P SSL option to perform a modify using client authentication. The command uses SSL (-Z) with the SSL port (-p) and specifies the trust store file path (-P), the certificate nickname (-N), the keystore file path (-K), the keystore password (-W) and the LDIF file (-f) that contains the changes. For Windows platforms, specify the paths for the modification file (for example, -f \temp\myldif.ldif), trust store file (for example, -P \certs\cert.db), and the keystore file (for example, -K \security\key.db):

$ ldapmodify -h hostname -p 1636 -f /home/local/myldif.ldif \
-Z -P /home/scarter/security/cert.db -N "sccert" \
-K /home/scarter/security/key.db -W keypassword

A.4.3.10 Exit Codes

An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. A nonzero exit code indicates that an error occurred during processing.

A.4.3.11 Using a CLI Properties File

The directory server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the ldapmodify command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. See Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands" for more information.

The following options can be stored in a properties file:

  • assertionFilter

A.4.4 ldappasswordmodify

The ldappasswordmodify command modifies LDAP passwords.

A.4.4.1 Synopsis

ldappasswordmodify options

A.4.4.2 Description

The ldappasswordmodify command can be used to change or reset user passwords with the LDAP password modify extended operation as defined in RFC 3062 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3062.txt).

Using this mechanism for changing user passwords offers a number of benefits over a simple LDAP modify operation targeted at the password attribute, including the following:

  • Changing one's own password. The command allows a user to change his own password even after it has expired, provided that this capability is allowed in that user's password policy.

  • Supplying clear-text password. The command provides a mechanism for supplying the clear-text version of the current password for further validation of the user's identity.

  • Using authorization ID. When changing a user's password, the user can be specified by using an authorization ID (prefixed by dn: or u:) in addition to a full DN.

  • Generating passwords. If a new password is not provided, then the server can generate one for the user, provided that this capability is allowed in that user's password policy.

A.4.4.3 Options

The ldappasswordmodify command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -D bindDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --bindDN bindDN).

A.4.4.4 Command Options

-a, --authzID authzID

Specify an authorization ID for the user whose password is to be changed. The authorization ID can be in the form dn: followed by the DN of the target user, or u: followed by the user name of the target user. If this option is not provided, then no authorization ID will be included in the request and the password for the authenticated user will be changed. This option must not be used in conjunction with the --provideDNForAuthzID option.

-A, --provideDNForAuthzID

Indicate that the bind DN should be used as the authorization ID for the password modify operation. This option must not be used in conjunction with the --authzID option.

-c, --currentPassword currentPassword

Specify the current password for the user. It must not be used in conjunction with --currentPasswordFile. The user's current password must be provided in cases in which no authentication is performed, for example, if a user is trying to change his password after it has already expired. The password might also be required by the server based on the password policy configuration even if a bind password was provided.

-C, --currentPasswordFile currentPasswordFile

Read the current password from the specified file. It must not be used in conjunction with --currentPassword. The user's current password must be provided in cases in which no authentication is performed, for example, if a user is trying to change his password after it has already expired. The password might also be required by the server based on the password policy configuration even if a bind password was provided.

-J, --control controloid[:criticality[:value|::b64value|:<fileurl]]

Perform a search with the specified control in search requests sent to the directory server. This option makes it possible to include arbitrary request controls that the client cannot directly support. The value for this option must be in the form:

oid[:criticality[:value|::b64value|:<fileurl]]

The elements of this value include:

  • oid. Use the OID for the control. For certain types of controls, a text name may be used instead of the numeric OID (for search operations, this includes managedsait for the manage DSA IT control). This element is required. Human-readable names can be used in place of the OID to reference controls that do not require values using the -J or control option. These OID names are the following:

    accountusable or accountusability — Use in place of the Account Usability Request Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.8 (no value).

    authzid or authorizationidentity — Use in place of the Authorization Identity Request Control OID: 2.16.840.1.113730.3.4.16 (no value).

    effectiverights — Use in place of the Get Effective Rights Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2 (value = authorization ID).

    managedsait — Use in place of the Manage DSA IT Control OID: 2.16.840.1.113730.3.4.2 (no value).

    noop or no-op — Use in place of the LDAP No-op Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.4203.1.10.2 (no value).

    pwpolicy or password policy — Use in place of the Password Policy Request Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.8.5.1 (no value).

    subtreedelete or treedelete — Use in place of the Subtree Delete Request Control OID: 1.2.840.113556.1.4.805 (no value).

  • criticality. If true, the control should be marked critical (meaning that the directory server should not process the operation unless it can meet the requirements of this control). If false, the control should not be marked critical. If this subcommand is not provided, then the control is not marked critical.

  • value. Specifies the value for the control. This form should only be used if the value can be expressed as a string. It must not be used in conjunction with either the ::b64value or :< fileurl forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

  • b64value. Specifies the value for the control in base64-encoded form. This subcommand must not be used in conjunction with either the :value or :< fileurl forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

  • fileurl. Specifies a URL that references a file from which the value of the control should be taken. It must not be used in conjunction with either the :value or ::b64value forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

For example, the value 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2:true:dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com will include a critical control with an OID of 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2, marked as critical (true), and with a string value for the authorization ID dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com. Or, you can use the OID names: effectiverights:true:dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com.

-n, --newPassword newPassword

Specify the new password that should be assigned to the target user. This option must not be used in conjunction with --newPasswordFile. If neither of these options is provided, then the server will automatically generate a new password for the user, provided that a password generator is configured in the user's password policy.

-N, --newPasswordFile newPasswordFile

Read the new password from the specified file that should be assigned to the target user. This option must not be used in conjunction with --newPassword. If neither of these options is provided, then the server will automatically generate a new password for the user, provided that a password generator is configured in the user's password policy.

A.4.4.5 LDAP Connection Options

--certNickname nickname

Use the certificate for certificate-based client authentication.

-D, --bindDN bindDN

Use the DN when binding to the directory server through simple authentication. If this option is not provided, then the --authzID option must be used to specify the authorization ID for the target user, and either the --currentPassword or --currentPasswordFile option must be provided to specify the current password for the user. (This mode of use will be required for users to change their passwords after the passwords have expired.)

Contact the directory server on the specified host name or IP address. If it is not provided, then a default address of localhost will be used.

-j, --bindPasswordFile bindPasswordFile

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the directory server. The option is used for simple authentication, as well as for password-based SASL mechanisms such as CRAM-MD5, DIGEST-MD5, and PLAIN. It is not required if no authentication is to be performed. This option must not be used in conjunction with --bindPassword.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-K, --keyStorePath keyStorePath

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path for secure communication when using the SSL or the StartTLS extended operation. This option should only be necessary if the client needs to present a certificate to the directory server, for example, when using SASL EXTERNAL authentication.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the specified option when performing SASL authentication. Multiple SASL options can be provided by using this option multiple times, once for each option. See Section 20.6, "Using SASL Authentication" for more information.

-p, --port port

Contact the directory server at the specified port. If this option is not provided, then a default port of 389 will be used.

-P, --trustStorePath trustStorePath

Use the client trust store certificate in the specified path for secure communication when using the SSL or the StartTLS extended operation. This option is not needed if --trustAll is used, although a trust store should be used when working in a production environment.

-q, --useStartTLS

Use the StartTLS extended operation when communicating with the directory server. This option must not be used in conjunction with --useSSL.

--trustStorePassword trustStorePassword

Use the password needed to access the certificates in the client trust store.

This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (most trust stores do not require this). This option must not be used in conjunction with --trustStorePassword.

-w, --bindPassword bindPassword

Use the bind password when authenticating to the directory server. This option can be used for simple authentication as well as password-based SASL mechanisms. This option must not be used in conjunction with --bindPasswordFile. To prompt for the password, type -w -.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-W, --keyStorePassword keyStorePassword

Use the password needed to access the certificates in the client keystore. This option is only required if --keyStorePath is used. This option must not be used in conjunction with --keyStorePasswordFile.

-X, --trustAll

Trust any certificate that the directory server might present during SSL or StartTLS negotiation. This option can be used for convenience and testing purposes, but for security reasons a trust store should be used to determine whether the client should accept the server certificate.

-Z, --useSSL

Use the Secure Sockets Layer when communicating with the directory server. If SSL is to be used, then the --port option should be used to specify the server's secure port.

A.4.4.6 Command Input/Output Options

--noPropertiesFile

Indicate that a properties file will not be used to get the default command-line options.

--propertiesFilePath propertiesFilePath

Specify the path to the properties file that contains the default command-line options.

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to run the command.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server.

A.4.4.8 Examples

The following examples show how to use the ldappasswordmodify command.

Example A-135 Modifying Your User Password

The following command connects to the host (-h) using port 1389 (-p), specifies the authorization ID uid=abergin (-a) of an administrator, specifies the user's current password file (-C), and changes it with a new one specified in a new password file (-N). For Windows platforms, use the file paths where your current and new passwords exist, respectively. For example, use -C \temp\currentPasswordFile and -N \temp\newPasswordFile.

$ ldappasswordmodify -h hostname -p 1389 \
-a "dn:uid=abergin,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com" \
-C /tmp/currentPasswordFile -N /tmp/newPasswordFile

The LDAP password modify operation was successful

Example A-136 Modifying and Generating a Password for Another User

The following command connects to the host (-h) using port 1389 (-p), specifies the bind DN (-D), specifies the bind password file (-j), and modifies and generates a password for another user (-a) connecting over simple authentication. For Windows platforms, specify the file where the bind password file resides, for example, -j \temp\bindPasswordFile.

$ ldappasswordmodify -h hostname -p 1389 \
-D "cn=Directory Manager" -j /tmp/bindPasswordFile \
-a "dn:uid=abergin,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com"

The LDAP password modify operation was successful
Generated Password:  blb44hjm

Example A-137 Modifying a Password for Another User

The following command connects to the host (-h) using port 1389 (-p), specifies the bind DN (-D), specifies the bind password file (-j), and modifies the password with a new one (-N) for another user (-a) connecting over simple authentication. For Windows platforms, specify the bind password file (for example, -j \temp\bindPasswordFile) and the new password file (for example, -N \temp\newPassword).

$ ldappasswordmodify -h hostname -p 1389 \
-D "cn=Directory Manager" -j /tmp/bindPasswordFile \
-a "dn:uid=abergin,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com" -N /tmp/newPassword

The LDAP password modify operation was successful

A.4.4.9 Exit Codes

An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. A nonzero exit code indicates that an error occurred during processing.

A.4.4.10 Using a CLI Properties File

The directory server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the ldappasswordmodify command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. See Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands" for more information.

The following options can be stored in a properties file:

  • authzID

  • bindDN

  • bindPassword

  • bindPasswordFile

  • currentPassword

  • currentPasswordFile

  • control

  • hostname

  • keyStorePassword

  • keyStorePasswordFile

  • keyStorePath

  • newPassword

  • newPasswordFile

  • port

  • provideDNForAuthzID

  • trustAll

  • trustStorePassword

  • trustStorePasswordFile

  • trustStorePath

  • useSSL

  • useStartTLS

Entries in the properties file have the following format:

toolname.propertyname=propertyvalue

For example:

ldappasswordmodify.ldapport=12345

A.4.4.11 Location

  • UNIX and Linux: INSTANCE_DIR/OUD/bin/ldappasswordmodify

  • Windows: INSTANCE_DIR\OUD\bat\ldappasswordmodify.bat

A.4.5 ldapsearch

The ldapsearch command searches directory server entries.

A.4.5.1 Synopsis

ldapsearch [options] [filter] [attributes]

A.4.5.2 Description

The ldapsearch command can be used to enter a search request to the directory server. The command opens a connection to the directory server, binds to it, and returns all entries that meet the search filter and scope requirements starting from the specified base DN. It can also be used to test other components of the directory server, such as authentication, control, and secure communication mechanisms.

If the --filename option is used to specify a file containing one or more search filters, then the search filter should not be included as an option. All trailing options will be interpreted as requested attributes.

If an entry has non-ASCII characters for its name and attributes, such as sn, givenName, uid, and title, the non-ASCII characters returned by running the ldapsearch command are suppressed while printing. You have to run the base64 command to decode the Base64-encoded string.

If no specific attributes are requested, then all user attributes (that is, all non-operational attributes) are returned. If one or more attribute names are listed, then only those attributes are included in the entries that are returned.

A.4.5.3 Before You Begin

Many UNIX and Linux operating systems provide an installed version of common LDAP client commands, such as ldapsearch, ldapmodify, and ldapdelete in the /usr/bin directory. You can check if a version is on your system by entering the command: which ldapsearch. If the command returns a value (seen below), you will need to update your $PATH to directory server installation directory or create an alias to the directory server instance.

$ which ldapsearch (Unix/Linux)
/usr/bin/ldapsearch

A.4.5.4 Options

The ldapsearch command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -b baseDN) or its long form equivalent (for example, --baseDN baseDN).

A.4.5.5 Command Options

-a, --dereferencePolicy dereferencePolicy

Specify the dereference alias policy during a search. Dereference alias allows you to set an entry to point to another object. If this option is not provided, then a default of never will be used. Possible values are the following:

  • always — Dereference aliases both when finding the base DN and when searching below it.

  • find — Dereference alias when finding the base DN.

  • never — Never dereference aliases (default).

  • search — Dereference aliases when searching below the base DN but not when finding the base DN.

-A, --typesOnly

Perform a search to include attribute names in matching entries but not the attribute values. If this option is not provided, then both attribute names and values will be included in the matching entries.

--assertionFilter filter

Perform a search using the LDAP assertion control (as defined in RFC 4528 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4528.txt)) to indicate that the operation should only be processed if the assertion contained in the provided filter is true.

-b, --baseDN baseDN

Specify the base DN to use for the search operation. If a file containing multiple filters is provided using the --filename option, then this base DN will be used for all of the searches. This is a required option. If a base DN with a null value ("") is specified, the server returns the root DSE entry.

-c, --continueOnError

Continue processing even if an error occurs. Use this option when you use multiple search filters in a file (--filename). If an error occurs during processing, the server will continue processing the next search filter. Otherwise the command will exit before all searches have been completed.

-C, --persistentSearch ps[:changetype[:changesonly[:entrychangecontrols]]]

Use the persistent search control (as defined in draft-ietf-ldapext-psearch.txt (https://opends.dev.java.net/public/standards/draft-ietf-ldapext-psearch.txt)) in the search request to obtain information about changes that are made to entries that match the provided search criteria. The value for this option must be in the form:

ps[:changetype[:changesonly [:entrychangecontrols]]]

The elements of this value include:

  • ps — Required operator.

  • changetype — Indicates the types of changes for which the client wants to receive notification. It can be any of add, del, mod, or moddn, or it can be all to register for all change types, or it can be a comma-separated list to register for multiple specific change types. If this element is not provided, then it will default to including all change types.

  • changesonly — If true, the client is only notified of changes that occur to matching entries after the search is registered. If false, the directory server sends all existing entries in the directory server that match the provided search criteria. If this element is not provided, then it will default to only returning entries for updates that occurred since the search was registered.

  • entrychangecontrols — If true, the directory server includes the entry change notification control in entries sent to the client as a result of changes. If false, the entry change notification control is not included. If this element is not provided, then it will default to including the entry change notification controls.

For example, the value ps:add,del:true:true returns only entries matching the search criteria that have been added or deleted since the time that the persistent search was registered, and those entries will include entry change notification controls.

--countEntries

Display the total number of matching entries returned by the directory server. If the --filename option is used to specify the path to a file containing multiple search filters, the total number of matching entries for all searches is displayed.

-e, --getEffectiveRightsAttribute attribute

Return the effective rights on the specified attribute. This option can be used to specify attributes that would not normally appear in the search results for the entry. For example, use this option to determine if a user has permission to add an attribute that does not currently exist in the entry. The -e option requires the --getEffectiveRightsAuthzid or -g option.

-f, --filename filename

Specify the path to a file that contains one or more filters to use when processing the search operation. If the file contains multiple filters, the file should be structured with one filter per line. The searches will be performed using the same connection to the directory server in the order that they appear in the filter file. If this option is used, any trailing options will be treated as separate attributes. Otherwise the first trailing option must be the search filter.

-g, --getEffectiveRightsAuthzid authzid

Display the effective rights of the user binding with the given authzid. This option can be used with the -e option but cannot be used with the -J option.

-G, --virtualListView before:after:index:count|before:after:value

Retrieve the virtual list view displaying a portion of the total search results. Use one of two patterns to specify the size of the virtual list view:

  • before:after:index:count — Return the target entry and the specified number of entries before the target entry and after the target entry. The target entry depends on the index and the count options. The count option can take the following values:

    count=0. The target entry is the entry at the specified index position, starting from 1 and relative to the entire list of sorted results.

    count=1. The target entry is the first entry in the list of sorted results.

    count>1. The target entry is the first entry in the portion of the list represented by the fraction index/count. To target the last result in the list, use an index option greater than the count option.

    For example, -G 5:10:2:4 specifies the index closest to the beginning of the second quarter of the entire list. If the search yielded 100 entries, the target index would be 26, and this pattern would return entries 21 through 36.

  • before:after:value — Return the target entry and specified number of entries before and after the target entry. The target entry is the first entry in the sorted results whose sort attribute is greater than or equal to the specified value.

    For example, -G 5:10:johnson -S sn returns 16 entries in alphabetical order from the surname attribute: 5 less than johnson, the entry equal to or following johnson, and the 10 entries after johnson.

-J, --control controloid[:criticality[:value|::b64value |:<filePath]]

Perform a search with the specified control in search requests sent to the directory server. This option makes it possible to include arbitrary request controls that the client cannot directly support. The value for this option must be in the form:

oid[:criticality[:value|::b64value|:<filePath]]

The elements of this value include:

  • oid. Use the OID for the control. For certain types of controls, a text name may be used instead of the numeric OID (for search operations, this includes managedsait for the manage DSA IT control). This element is required. Human-readable names can be used in place of the OID to reference controls that do not require values using the -J or control option. These OID names are the following:

    accountusable or accountusability — Use in place of the Account Usability Request Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.8 (no value).

    authzid or authorizationidentity — Use in place of the Authorization Identity Request Control OID: 2.16.840.1.113730.3.4.16 (no value).

    effectiverights — Use in place of the Get Effective Rights Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2 (value = authorization ID).

    managedsait — Use in place of the Manage DSA IT Control OID: 2.16.840.1.113730.3.4.2 (no value).

    noop or no-op — Use in place of the LDAP No-op Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.4203.1.10.2 (no value).

    pwpolicy or password policy — Use in place of the Password Policy Request Control OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.8.5.1 (no value).

    subtreedelete or treedelete — Use in place of the Subtree Delete Request Control OID: 1.2.840.113556.1.4.805 (no value).

  • criticality. If true, the control should be marked critical (meaning that the directory server should not process the operation unless it can meet the requirements of this control). If false, the control should not be marked critical. If this subcommand is not provided, then the control is not marked critical.

  • value. Specifies the value for the control. This form should only be used if the value can be expressed as a string. It must not be used in conjunction with either the ::b64value or :< fileurl forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

  • b64value. Specifies the value for the control in base64-encoded form. This subcommand must not be used in conjunction with either the :value or :< fileurl forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

  • fileurl. Specifies a URL that references a file from which the value of the control should be taken. It must not be used in conjunction with either the :value or ::b64value forms. If none of these subcommands is present, then the control will not have a value.

For example, the value 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2:true:dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com will include a critical control with an OID of 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2, marked as critical (true), and with a string value for the authorization ID dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com. Or, you can use the OID names: effectiverights:true:dn:uid=dmiller,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com.

-l, --timeLimit numSeconds

Set the maximum length of time, in seconds, that the directory server should spend processing any search request. If this option is not provided, no time limit is requested by the client. Note that the directory server can enforce a lower time limit than the one that is requested by the client.

--matchedValuesFilter filter

Use the LDAP matched values control (as defined in RFC 3876 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3876.txt)) to indicate that only attribute values matching the specified filter should be included in the search results. This option can be provided multiple times to specify multiple matched values filters.

-n, --dry-run

Run in no-op mode. That is, report what should happen but do not actually perform any searches or communicate with the server in any way.

-s, --searchScope scope

Set the scope for the search operation. The scope value must be one of the following:

  • base — Search only the entry specified by the --baseDN or -b option.

  • one — Search only the entry specified by the --baseDN or -b option and its immediate children.

  • sub or subordinate — Search the subtree whose base is the entry specified by the --baseDN or -b option. This is the default option when the --searchScope is not provided.

-S, --sortOrder sortOrder

Sort the results before returning them to the client. The sort order is a comma-delimited list of sort keys, where each sort key consists of the following elements:

  • +/- (plus or minus sign) — Indicates that the sort should be in ascending (+) or descending (-) order. If this element is omitted, then the sort will be in ascending order.

  • attribute name — The name of the attribute to use when sorting the data. This element must always be provided.

  • name or OID Matching Rule — An optional colon followed by the name or OID of the matching rule to use to perform the sort. If this element is not provided, then the default ordering matching rule for the specified attribute type will be used. For example, the sort order string sn,givenName sorts entries in ascending order first by sn and then by givenName. Alternately, the value --modifyTimestamp will cause the results to be sorted with the most recent values first.

--simplePageSize numEntries

Use the Simple Paged Results control with the given page size.

--subEntries

Use the subentries control to specify that subentries are visible, and normal entries are not.

-Y, --proxyAsauthzID

Use the Proxied Authorization Control to specify the identity of the user for whom the operations should be performed. This will use version 2 of the Proxied Authorization Control as defined in RFC 4370 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4370.txt). The value of the option should be an authorization ID in the form dn: followed by the DN of the target user (for example, dn:uid=john.doe,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com), or u: followed by the user name (for example, u:john.doe). If this option is not provided, proxied authorization is not used.

-z, --sizeLimit numEntries

Set the maximum number of matching entries that the directory server should return to the client. If this option is not provided, then there will be no maximum requested by the client. Note that the directory server can enforce a lower size limit than the one requested by the client.

A.4.5.6 LDAP Connection Options

-D, --bindDN bindDN

Use the bind DN to authenticate to the directory server. This option is used when performing simple authentication. The default value for this option is cn=Directory Manager. It is not required when using SASL authentication or if no authentication is to be performed.

-E, --reportAuthzID

Use the authorization identity request control (as defined in RFC 3829 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3829.txt)) in the bind request so that the directory server returns the corresponding authorization ID to the client when authentication has completed. (The line containing the authorization ID will be prefixed with a # character, making it a comment if the output is to be interpreted as an LDIF.)

-h, --hostname address

Contact the directory server on the specified host name or IP address. If it is not provided, then a default address of localhost will be used.

-j, --bindPasswordFile bindPasswordFile

Use the bind password in the specified file when authenticating to the directory server. The option is used for simple authentication, as well as for password-based SASL mechanisms such as CRAM-MD5, DIGEST-MD5, and PLAIN. It is not required if no authentication is to be performed. This option must not be used in conjunction with --bindPassword.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-K, --keyStorePath keyStorePath

Use the client keystore certificate in the specified path for secure communication when using the SSL or the StartTLS extended operation. This option should only be necessary if the client needs to present a certificate to the directory server, for example, when using SASL EXTERNAL authentication.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

-N, --certNickName certNickName

Use the specified certificate for certificate-based client authentication.

-o, --saslOption name=value

Use the StartTLS Extended Operation extended operation when communicating with the directory server. This option must not be used in conjunction with --useSSL.

-r, --useSASLExternal

Use the SASL EXTERNAL mechanism for authentication, which attempts to identify the client by using an SSL certificate that it presents to the directory server. If this option is used, then the --keyStorePath option must also be provided to specify the path to the client keystore and either the --useSSL or the --useStartTLS option must be used to establish a secure communication channel with the server.

SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

--trustStorePassword trustStorePassword

Use the password needed to access the certificates in the client trust store. This option is only required if --trustStorePath is used and the specified trust store requires a password in order to access its contents (which most trust stores do not require). This option must not be used in conjunction with --trustStorePasswordFile.

-u, --keyStorePasswordFile keyStorePasswordFile

-Z, --useSSL

Use SSL when communicating with the directory server. If SSL is to be used, then the --port option should be used to specify the server's secure port.

A.4.5.7 Command Input/Output Options

--noPropertiesFile

Indicate that a properties file will not be used to get the default command-line options.

--propertiesFilePath propertiesFilePath

Specify the path to the properties file that contains the default command-line options.

-T, --dontWrap

Do not wrap long lines when displaying matching entries. If this option is not provided, then long lines will be wrapped (in a manner compatible with the LDIF specification) to fit on an 80-column terminal.

-v, --verbose

Run in verbose mode, displaying process and diagnostic information on standard output.

A.4.5.8 General Options

-?, -H, --help

Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to run the command.

-V, --version

Display the version information for the directory server.

A.4.5.9 Examples

The following examples show how to use the ldapsearch command. For additional examples, see Section 17.4, "Searching Directory Data."

Example A-138 Returning All Entries

The following command returns all entries on the directory server. The command connects to the default port 1389 (-p) on the host (-h), specifies the base DN as example.com (-b), and returns all entries by using the search filter (objectclass=*). Because the scope (-s) is not specified, the scope is set to the default value of sub, the full subtree of the base DN. Because no attributes are specified, the command returns all attributes and values.

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1389 -b dc=example,dc=com "(objectclass=*)"

dn: dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: domain
objectClass: top
dc: example

dn: ou=Groups,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: organizationalunit
objectClass: top
ou: Groups

dn: cn=Directory Administrators,ou=Groups,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: groupofuniquenames
objectClass: top
ou: Groups
cn: Directory Administrators
uniquemember: uid=kvaughan, ou=People, dc=example,dc=com
uniquemember: uid=rdaugherty, ou=People, dc=example,dc=com
uniquemember: uid=hmiller, ou=People, dc=example,dc=com

Example A-139 Returning Attributes Names but No Values

The following command returns the attribute names (-A) but no values. The command connects to the default port 1389 (-p) on the host (-h), specifies the base DN as dc=example,dc=com (-b), matches all entries by using the search filter objectclass=*, and returns three (-z) entries. Using the -A option is a convenient way to check if an attribute is present in the database.

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1389 -b dc=example,dc=com -A -z 3 "(objectclass=*)"

dn: dc=example,dc=com
objectClass
dc

dn: ou=Groups,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass
ou

dn: cn=Directory Administrators,ou=Groups,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass
ou
cn
uniquemember

Example A-140 Returning Specific Attribute Values

The following command returns a specific attribute and its value. The command connects to the port 1389 (-p) on the host (-h), specifies the base DN as dc=example,dc=com (-b), matches all entries by using the search filter cn=Sam Carter, and returns the value of the attribute, telephonenumber.

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1389 -b dc=example,dc=com "(cn=Sam Carter)" telephoneNumber

dn: uid=scarter,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
telephonenumber: +1 408 555 4798

Example A-141 Returning the Root DSE

The root DSE is a special entry that provides information about the directory server's name, version, naming contexts, and supported features. You specify the root DSE by using a base DN with a null value (for example, -b "") from which the directory server searches below all public naming contexts by default. You can override the null base DN default by specifying specific sets of base DNs with the subordinate-base-dn property by using the dsconfig command. The following example connects to the default port 1389 (-p) on the host (-h), specifies the root DSE as an empty base entry (-b), specifies the scope of the search to base (-s), matches all entries by using the search filter objectclass=*, and returns the directory server's root DSE information for supported controls:

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1389 -b "" -s base "(objectclass=*)" supportedControl

dn:
supportedControl: 1.2.826.0.1.3344810.2.3
supportedControl: 1.2.840.113556.1.4.319
supportedControl: 1.2.840.113556.1.4.473
supportedControl: 1.2.840.113556.1.4.805
...

Example A-142 Searching by Using Server Authentication

The following command uses the SSL option to run a search with server authentication. The command specifies the host name (-h), SSL port 1636 (-p), base DN (-b), the bind DN (-D), the bind password (-w), trust store file path (-P), and the entity's given name. For Windows platforms, specify the paths for trust store file (for example, -P \certs\cert.db).

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1636 -b "dc=example,dc=com" \
-D "uid=scarter,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" -w bindPassword \
-P /home/scarter/certs/cert.db "(givenname=Sam)"

Example A-143 Searching by Using Client Authentication

The following command uses the SSL option to perform a search by using client authentication. The command uses SSL (-Z) with the SSL port (-p) and specifies the trust store file path (-P), the certificate nickname (-N), the keystore file path (-K), the keystore password (-W) and the entity's given name (givenname=Sam). For Windows platforms, specify the paths for the trust store file (for example, -P \certs\cert.db), and the keystore file (for example, -K \security\key.db):

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1636 -b "dc=example,dc=com" \
-Z -P /home/scarter/security/cert.db -N "sccert" \
-K /home/scarter/security/key.db -W KeyPassword \
"(givenname=Sam)"

Example A-144 Returning the Effective Rights of a User

The following command returns the effective rights granted to a user, in addition to the user's attribute entries. Only a directory administrator can access this information for another user. The command specifies the host name (-h), port 1389 (-p), bindDN (-D), bindDN password (-w), base DN (-b), control spec option that includes the OID name effectiverights (alternately, you can enter the OID equivalent: 1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2), search filter objectclass=*, and the aclRights attribute.

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j pwd-file \
-b dc=example,dc=com -J "1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.27.9.5.2"  "(objectclass=*)" \
aclRights

dn: dc=example,dc=com
aclRights;entryLevel: add:0,delete:0,read:1,write:0,proxy:0

dn: ou=Groups, dc=example,dc=com
aclRights;entryLevel: add:0,delete:0,read:1,write:0,proxy:0

dn: ou=People, dc=example,dc=com
aclRights;entryLevel: add:0,delete:0,read:1,write:0,proxy:0

dn: cn=Accounting Managers,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com
aclRights;entryLevel: add:0,delete:0,read:1,write:0,proxy:0

dn: cn=HR Managers,ou=groups,dc=example,dc=com
aclRights;entryLevel: add:0,delete:0,read:1,write:0,proxy:0

dn: uid=bjensen,ou=People, dc=example,dc=com
aclRights;entryLevel: add:0,delete:0,read:1,write:0,proxy:0

dn: uid=cfuente, ou=People, dc=example,dc=com
aclRights;entryLevel: add:0,delete:0,read:1,write:1,proxy:0

Example A-145 Returning the Schema

The following command searches the cn=schema entry for the object classes and attributes defined on the directory instance. The command connects to the port 1389 (-p) on the host (-h), sets the scope of the search to base (-s), matches all entries by using the search filter (objectclass=\*) and returns the objectClass definitions in the schema entry, cn=schema. You can also use the + symbol to view the schema. Place it after the search filter.

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1389 -b cn=schema -s base "(objectclass=*)" objectClasses

dn: cn=schema
objectClasses: ( 2.5.6.0 NAME 'top' ABSTRACT MUST objectClass X-ORIGIN 'RFC 4512
' )
objectClasses: ( 2.5.6.1 NAME 'alias' SUP top STRUCTURAL MUST aliasedObjectName
X-ORIGIN 'RFC 4512' )
objectClasses: ( 2.5.6.2 NAME 'country' SUP top STRUCTURAL MUST c MAY ( searchGu
ide $ description ) X-ORIGIN 'RFC 4519' )
objectClasses: ( 2.5.6.3 NAME 'locality' SUP top STRUCTURAL MAY ( street $ seeAl
so $ searchGuide $ st $ l $ description ) X-ORIGIN 'RFC 4519' )
...

Example A-146 Performing a Persistent Search

The ldapsearch command provides an option to run a persistent search (-C) that keeps the connection open and displays the entries that matching the scope and filter whenever any changes (add, delete, mod, or all) occur. The command connects to the port 1389 (-p), sets the scope of the search to base (-s), and matches all entries by using the search filter (objectclass=\*). You can quit out of the search by pressing Control-C.

$ ldapsearch -b dc=example,dc=com -p 1389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" \
-j pwd-file -C ps:add:true:true "(objectclass=*)"

Example A-147 Viewing ACI Attributes

The following command displays the access control instruction (ACI) attributes from the specified base DN. The command connects to the port 1389 (-p), sets the scope of the search to base (-s), matches all entries using the search filter (objectclass=\*) and specifies the aci attribute.

$ ldapsearch -p 1389 -D "cn=Directory Manager" -j pwd-file -b dc=example,dc=com \
-s base "(objectclass=*)" aci

dn: dc=example,dc=com
aci: (target ="ldap:///dc=example,dc=com")(targetattr h3.="userPassword")(version
3.0;acl "Anonymous read-search access";allow (read, search, compare)(userdn = "
ldap:///anyone");)
aci: (target="ldap:///dc=example,dc=com") (targetattr = "*")(version 3.0; acl "a
llow all Admin group"; allow(all) groupdn = "ldap:///cn=Directory Administrator
s,ou=Groups,dc=example,dc=com";)

Example A-148 Viewing Monitoring Information

The following command searches the cn=monitor entry for information on the activity on the directory server. The command specifies the host name (-h), port (-p), base DN (-b) for cn=monitor, authenticates using the bind DN (-D) and bind password (-w) and specifies the filter (objectclass=\*).

$ ldapsearch --useSSL -X -h hostname -p 4444 -b cn=monitor -D "cn=Directory Manager" \
-j pwd-file "(objectclass=*)"

dn: cn=monitor
objectClass: top
objectClass: extensibleObject
objectClass: ds-monitor-entry
currentTime: 20070803161832Z
startTime: 20070803132044Z
productName: Oracle Unified Directory
...

Example A-149 Searching by Using a Properties File

The directory server supports the use of a properties file that passes in any default option values used with the ldapsearch command. The properties file is convenient when working in different configuration environments, especially in scripted or embedded applications. See Section A.1.2, "Using a Properties File With Server Commands" for more information.

The following options can be stored in a properties file:

  • assertionFilter

  • bindDN

  • bindPassword

  • bindPasswordFile

  • certNickname

  • continueOnError

  • control

  • countEntries

  • dereferencePolicy

  • dry-run

  • dontWrap

  • filename

  • getEffectiveRightsAttribute

  • getEffectiveRightsAuthzid

  • hostname

  • keyStorePassword

  • keyStorePasswordFile

  • keyStorePath

  • ldapVersion

  • matchedValuesFilter

  • persistentSearch

  • port

  • proxyAs

  • reportAuthzID

  • saslOption

    SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

  • searchScope

  • simplePageSize

  • sizeLimit

  • sortOrder

  • timeLimit

  • trustAll

  • trustStorePassword

  • trustStorePasswordFile

  • trustStorePath

  • typesOnly

  • usePasswordPolicyControl

  • useSASLExternal

    SASL is not supported for a proxy server instance.

  • useSSL

  • useStartTLS

  • verbose

  • virtualListView

A.4.5.10 To Search by Using a Properties File

  1. Create a properties file in any text editor. Here, save the file as tools.properties.

    hostname=host
    port=1389
    bindDN=cn=Directory Manager
    bindPassword=password
    baseDN=dc=example,dc=com
    searchScope=sub
    sortOrder=givenName
    virtualListView=0:2:1:0
    
  2. Use ldapsearch with the --propertiesFilePath option. $ldapsearch --propertiesFilePath tools.properties "(objectclass=*)"

A.4.5.11 Search Attributes

A number of special search attributes can also be used for various purposes, including the following:

*This symbol indicates that all user attributes should be included in the entries returned by the directory server.

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1389 -b dc=example,dc=com "(objectclass=*)" *

+This symbol indicates that all operational attributes are to be included in the entries returned by the directory server. By default, no operational attributes will be returned. Note that even if this is specified, there might be some operational attributes that are not returned automatically for some reason for example, if an expensive computation is required to construct the value). On some systems, you might need to escape the + symbol by enclosing it in quotation marks, "+" or by using a backslash, \+.

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1389 -b dc=example,dc=com "(objectclass=*)" "+"

1.1This indicates that no attribute values should be included in the matching entries. On some systems, you might need to escape the 1.1 character by enclosing it in quotation marks, "1.1", or by using a backslash, \1.1.

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1389 -b dc=example,dc=com "(objectclass=*)" "1.1"

@_objectclass_This indicates that all attributes associated with the specified object class should be included in the entries returned by the server. For example, @person indicates that the server should include all attributes associated with the person object class.

$ ldapsearch -h hostname -p 1389 -b dc=example,dc=com "(objectclass=*)" @person

A.4.5.12 Exit Codes

An exit code of 0 indicates that the operation completed successfully. A nonzero exit code indicates that an error occurred during processing.
