ud - interactive LDAP Directory Server query program SYNOPSIS
ud [-Dv] [-s server] [-d debug-mask] [-l ldap-debug-mask] [-f file] DESCRIPTION
ud is used to interogate a directory server via the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). OPTIONS
-s server Used to specify the name of an LDAP server to which ud should connect. If this flag is omitted, the value specified in the ud configuration file is used. If no value is specified in the configuration file, or the configuration file does not exist, the name ldap is used. Of course, it is up to the system administrator to make sure that the name ldap can be resolved (presumably through the use of a CNAME or A record in the DNS and the appropriate search path specified in the resolver config file). -d debug-mask Sets the ud debug mask to the value specified. Values for the mask can be dumped by using the -D flag. -f file Sets the configuration file to the name specified. -l ldap-debug-mask Sets the LDAP debug mask to the value specified. -v Turns on verbose output. Also toggable via the ud verbose command. -D Prints out a list of valid ud debug masks. FILES
/etc/openldap/ud.conf The ud configuration file. SEE ALSO
ud.conf(5), ldap.conf(5), ldap(3) DIAGNOSTICS
ud will try to be nice about error conditions, and in most cases prints a warm and fuzzy error message when it encounters a problem. Some- times the error will be unexpected, and in these cases, ud uses the ldap_perror() routine to print an informative diagnostic. BUGS
Too numerous to mention. AUTHOR

slapdn - Check a list of string-represented LDAP DNs based on schema syntax SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/slapdn [-d debug-level] [-f slapd.conf] [-F confdir] [-N|-P] [-o option[=value]] [-v] DN [...] DESCRIPTION
Slapdn is used to check the conformance of a DN based on the schema defined in slapd(8) and that loaded via slapd.conf(5). It opens the slapd.conf(5) configuration file or the slapd-config (5) backend, reads in the schema definitions, and then parses the DN list given on the command-line. OPTIONS
-d debug-level enable debugging messages as defined by the specified debug-level; see slapd(8) for details. -f slapd.conf specify an alternative slapd.conf(5) file. -F confdir specify a config directory. If both -f and -F are specified, the config file will be read and converted to config directory format and written to the specified directory. If neither option is specified, an attempt to read the default config directory will be made before trying to use the default config file. If a valid config directory exists then the default config file is ignored. -N only output a normalized form of the DN, suitable to be used in a normalization tool; incompatible with -P. -o option[=value] Specify an option with a(n optional) value. Possible generic options/values are: syslog=<subsystems> (see `-s' in slapd(8)) syslog-level=<level> (see `-S' in slapd(8)) syslog-user=<user> (see `-l' in slapd(8)) -P only output a prettified form of the DN, suitable to be used in a check and beautification tool; incompatible with -N. -v enable verbose mode. EXAMPLES
To check a DN give the command: /usr/sbin/slapdn -f //etc/ldap/slapd.conf -v DN SEE ALSO
