search filter for presence of dn
I am attempting to determine the presence of a DN in LDAP. I am using the C
SDK of OpenLDAP 1.2.9.
I am calling ldap_search as follows:
dn, // the dn being searched for
This works fine when the DN is present, but returns an error code
LDAP_NO_SUCH_OBJECT when the DN is not present.
My question is: Is this the intended behaviour, it seems strange to return
an error code on a valid query. Is there a better way to do this, or should
I just test the error code for LDAP_NO_SUCH_OBJECT.
Thanks in advance,
