After Googling this for about an hour, I decided to post here. If I

However, if I try a search using my DN, I can never get a result:
ldapsearch -x -LLL "dn=uid=droy,ou=people,dc=eclipse,dc=org"
I'm writing a Perl application where I have the user's DN, and need
their mail address. Unfortunately, perl's ldap->search using the DN as
a filter behaves the same way.
Any help or pointers on how to search for entries based on the DN
would be appreciated!
"dn=<something>" is not a valid filter because "dn" is not an attribute
name. If you already know the DN to search for, then what you need is a
"read", i.e. a search with base=the DN and scope="base". But this
question is off-topic here.
