ldapcompare - LDAP compare tool SYNOPSIS
ldapcompare [-n] [-v] [-z] [-k] [-K] [-M[M]] [-d debuglevel] [-D binddn] [-W] [-w passwd] [-y passwdfile] [-H ldapuri] [-h ldaphost] [-p ldapport] [-P 2|3] [-O security-properties] [-I] [-Q] [-U authcid] [-R realm] [-x] [-X authzid] [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]] DN < attr:value | attr::b64value > DESCRIPTION
ldapcompare is a shell-accessible interface to the ldap_compare(3) library call. ldapcompare opens a connection to an LDAP server, binds, and performs a compare using specified parameters. The DN should be a distin- guished name in the directory. Attr should be a known attribute. If followed by one colon, the assertion value should be provided as a string. If followed by two colons, the base64 encoding of the value is provided. OPTIONS
-n Show what would be done, but don't actually perform the compare. Useful for debugging in conjunction with -v. -v Run in verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard output. -z Run in quiet mode, no output is written. You must check the return status. Useful in shell scripts. -k Use Kerberos IV authentication instead of simple authentication. It is assumed that you already have a valid ticket granting ticket. ldapcompare must be compiled with Kerberos support for this option to have any effect. -K Same as -k, but only does step 1 of the Kerberos IV bind. This is useful when connecting to a slapd and there is no name principal registered with your Kerberos Domain Controller(s). -M[M] Enable manage DSA IT control. -MM makes control critical. -d debuglevel Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel. ldapcompare must be compiled with LDAP_DEBUG defined for this option to have any effect. -x Use simple authentication instead of SASL. -D binddn Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP directory. -W Prompt for simple authentication. This is used instead of specifying the password on the command line. -w passwd Use passwd as the password for simple authentication. -y passwdfile Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password for simple authentication. -H ldapuri Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s). -h ldaphost Specify an alternate host on which the ldap server is running. Deprecated in favor of -H. -p ldapport Specify an alternate TCP port where the ldap server is listening. Deprecated in favor of -H. -P 2|3 Specify the LDAP protocol version to use. -O security-properties Specify SASL security properties. -I Enable SASL Interactive mode. Always prompt. Default is to prompt only as needed. -Q Enable SASL Quiet mode. Never prompt. -U authcid Specify the authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the ID depends on the actual SASL mechanism used. -R realm Specify the realm of authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the realm depends on the actual SASL mechanism used. -X authzid Specify the proxy authorization ID for SASL bind. authzid must be one of the following formats: dn:<distinguished name> or u:<user- name> -Y mech Specify the SASL mechanism to be used for authentication. If it's not specified, the program will choose the best mechanism the server knows. -Z[Z] Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended operation. If you use -ZZ, the command will require the operation to be success- ful. EXAMPLE
ldapcompare "uid=babs,dc=example,dc=com" sn Jensen ldapcompare "uid=babs,dc=example,dc=com" sn:Jensen ldapcompare "uid=babs,dc=example,dc=com" sn::SmVuc2Vu are all equivalent. DIAGNOSTICS
When -z is used, exit status is either 5 if the compare is false, or 6 when the compare is true. Errors result in other non-zero values. When -z is not used, exit status is zero if no errors occur. Errors result in a non-zero exit status and a diagnostic message being writ- ten to standard error. BUGS
Should have a way to specify a url for options or for large binary file compares. SEE ALSO
