Newbie ldapsearch syntax question
I think my current problems are that I don't quite understand the terms
that the OpenLDAP documentation uses.
ldapsearch won't work for me...I've done this so far:
Made, tested & installed the LDAP server. Stuck this into the
suffix "dc=fv, dc=digiserve, dc=ie"
rootdn "cn=root, dc=fv, dc=digiserve, dc=ie"
I've gotten a mockup passwd file imported with:
# migrate_passwd.pl /etc/passwd ./passwd.ldif
# ldif2ldbm -i passwd.ldif
And slapd is started. And the problem at hand is:
# ldapsearch -w secret -b "dc=fv, dc=digiserve, dc=ie" 'objectclass=*'
ldap_search: No such object
I assume that the "suffix" bit is a sort of a root directory label, yes
? So it has to match the parameter after the '-b' flag. But this isn't
working, so there must be something else I'm missing...
