UNIX Script to query Active Directory: give cn (NT login name) and receive mail (Email address)

Hi folks

I need to write UNIX script (with ldapsearch) to query Active Directory. Input is NT login name and output is Email address.

Attached a screenshot of Sysinternals "AD Explorer". I need to do the same in CLI.


I am absolute LDAP/ldapsearch noob.

Email::Send::IO(3pm)					User Contributed Perl Documentation				      Email::Send::IO(3pm)

Email::Send::IO - Send messages using IO operations SYNOPSIS
use Email::Send; my $mailer = Email::Send->new({mailer => 'IO'}); $mailer->send($message); # To STDERR $mailer->mailer_args('filename.txt'); $mailer->send($message); # write file DESCRIPTION
This is a mailer for "Email::Send" that will send a message using IO operations. By default it sends mail to STDERR, very useful for debug- ging. The IO functionality is built upon "IO::All". Any additional arguments passed to "send" will be used as arguments to "IO::All::io". You can globally change where IO is sent by modifying the @Email::Send::IO::IO package variable. @Email::Send::IO::IO = ('-'); # always append to STDOUT. Examples Sending to STDOUT. send IO => $message, '-'; Send to a socket. send IO => $message, 'server:1337'; SEE ALSO
