Re: Querying Directory entries


I have also experienced that ldif2ldbm do not always
give the expected result. Maybe someone out there can

An alternative that works for me is to use
ldamodify -a -c -f filename

This will add all entrys from an ldif file. -c means
that it will continue with next entry if one failes.
