I think that you should use: ldapsearch 'cn=mehdi*' -x Note the wildcard * following 'mehdi'. Incidentally, I generally use the -b option to specify the base of the search e.g. I would do ldapsearch 'cn=mehdi*' -x -b 'dc=sunset,dc=ce,dc=sharif,dc=edu' I'm not sure what -b defaults to; it doesn't seem to use the suffix specified in slapd.conf. man ldapsearch says : -b searchbase Use searchbase as the starting point for the search instead of the default. Does any one know what the default of -b is? Bob -- The Law of the Letter: The best way to inspire fresh thoughts is to seal the envelope.
