ldaplist - search and list naming information from a LDAP directory service


/usr/bin/ldaplist [ -dlv ] [ database [ key ] ... ] /usr/bin/ldaplist -h


The ldaplist utility searches for and lists the naming information from the LDAP directory service defined in the /var/ldap/LDAP_CLIENT_CACHE file generated by ldapclient(1M) during the client initialization phase. The database is either a container name or a database name as defined in nsswitch.conf(4). A container is a non-leaf entry in the Directory Information Tree (DIT) that contains naming service information. The container name is the LDAP Relative Distiguished Name (RDN) of the container relative to the search baseDN defined in the LDAP_CLIENT_CACHE file. For example, for a container named "ou=people", the database name is the database specified in nsswitch.conf. This data- bases is mapped to a container (for example, "passwd" maps to "ou=people"). If an invalid database is specified, it will be mapped to a generic container (for example, "nisMapName=name"). The key is the attribute value to be searched in the data- base. You can specify more than one key to be searched in the same database. The key can be specified in either of two forms: attribute=value or value. In the first case, ldaplist passes the search key to the server. In the latter case, an attribute is assigned depending on how the database is specified. If the database is a container name, then the "cn" attribute type is used. If it is a valid database name as defined in the nsswitch.conf, then a predefined attribute type is used (see table below). If it is an invalid data- base name, then "cn" is used as the attribute type. The ldaplist utility relies on the Schema defined in the RFC 2307 (with new extension). The data stored on the LDAP server must be stored based on this Schema. The following table lists the mapping from the database names to the con- tainer, the LDAP object class, and the attribute type used if not defined in the key: SunOS 5.8 Last change: 21 Oct 1999 1 User Commands ldaplist(1) _________________________________________________________________________ | Database | Objectclass | Attr Type | Container | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | aliases | mailGroup | cn | ou=Aliases | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | automount | nisObject | cn | nisMapName=auto_* 1| |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | bootparams | bootableDevice| cn | ou=Ethers | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | ethers | ieee802Device | cn | ou=Ethers | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | group | posixgroup | cn | ou=Group | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | hosts | ipHost | cn | ou=Hosts | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | ipnodes | ipHost | cn | ou=Hosts | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | netgroup | ipNetgroup | cn | ou=Netgroup | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | netmasks | ipNetwork | ipnetworknumber| ou=Networks | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | networks | ipNetwork | ipnetworknumber| ou=Networks | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | passwd | posixAccount | uid | ou=People | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | protocols | ipProtocol | cn | ou=Protocols | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | publickey | nisKeyObject | uidnumber | ou=People 2 | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | | | cn | ou=Hosts 3 | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | rpc | oncRpc | cn | ou=Rpc | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| | services | ipService | cn | ou=Services | |_______________|________________|_________________|_____________________| The following notes correspond to the numerals in the far right-hand column. 1 auto_* represents auto_home, auto_direct, ... 2 If the key starts with a digit, it will be interpreted as an uid number. 3 If the key starts with a non-digit, it will be inter- preted as a host name. The ldaplist utility supports substring search by using the wildcard "*" in the key. For example, "my*" will match any strings that starts with "my". In some shell environments, keys containing the wildcard may need to be quoted. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 21 Oct 1999 2 User Commands ldaplist(1) If the key is not specified, all the containers in the current search baseDN will be listed.


The following options are supported: -d List the attributes for the specified database, rather than the entries. By default, the entries are listed. -h List the database mapping. -l List all the attributes for each entry matching the search criteria. By default, ldaplist lists only the Distiguished Name of the entries found. -v Set verbose mode. The ldaplist utility will also print the filter used to search for the entry. The filter will be prefixed with "+++".


Example 1: List all entries in the hosts database. example% lpdalist hosts Example 2: List all entries in a non-standard database ou=new. example% ldaplist ou=new Example 3: Find "user1" in the passwd database. example% ldaplist passwd user1 Example 4: Find the entry with service port of 4045 in the services database. example% ldaplist services ipserviceport=4045 Example 5: Find all users with username staring with "new" in the passwd database. example% ldaplist passwd 'new*' Example 6: List the attributes for the hosts database. example% ldaplist -d hosts


The following exit values are returned: 0 Successfully matched some entries. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 21 Oct 1999 3 User Commands ldaplist(1) 1 Successfully searched the table and no matches were found. 2 An error occurred. An error message is output.


/var/ldap/ldap_client_cache contains a list of servers, their transport addresses, and the security method used to access them. /var/ldap/ldap_client_cred This file contains Bind Distinguished Name and the encrypted password. This file is normally readable only by root (uid 0) and is modified and read only by ldap_cachemgr(1M).

RFC 2307 is an IETF experimental document that defines an approach for using LDAP as a Network Information Service. An extension to the RFC 2307 draft is pending. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 21 Oct 1999 4
