RE: Searching on dn; please send clue
The DN isn't an attribute. You can't search on it like you
would an attribute. If you know the DN you want, use it as
the base of the search and set the scope to base, and use
objectclass=* as a filter.
ldapsearch -b "uid=foo,ou=People,dc=mycompany,dc=com" -s base objectclass=*
