Replace a line with another string + Solaris

Hi,

In my /etc/ldap.conf , I have below entry
Code:
uri ldaps://pbs-mast.prd.prp.ia/ ldaps://dbs-mast.prd.prp.ia/

I want to replace it with -
Code:
uri ldaps://dbs-mast.prd.prp.ia/

I tried with awk, but due to / , it is giving error.
Thanks

something along these lines:
Code:
echo 'uri ldaps://pbs-mast.prd.prp.ia/ ldaps://dbs-mast.prd.prp.ia/' | awk '/^uri ldaps:/{print $2}'

NOTE: use nawk on Solaris.

I must be missing something here. Why isn't the desired output produced by:
Code:
echo 'uri ldaps://pbs-mast.prd.prp.ia/ ldaps://dbs-mast.prd.prp.ia/' | nawk '/^uri ldaps:/{print $1,$2}'

You did say you wanted the uri at the start of the desired output didn't you?

Note that in addition to nawk, you could also use /usr/xpg4/bin/awk on a Solaris system. For some types of extended regular expression matching you would need to use /usr/xpg4/bin/awk, but for the EREs used in this example, either will work.

Code:
awk '/^uri ldaps:/{print $2}'

hence you'll change *any* line with trailing uri ldaps:
