RE: ldapsearch command help

Well what I am trying to accomplish here is that we have a one big AD domain
and below that we have separate child domain for each organization.  So what
I would like is when I run the ldapsearch command to query a specific child
domain I am not able to get the result I am looking for.  It queries the
whole domain which I don't want.  

So I hope you understand what I am talking about.  If you can help me out
here as what syntax to input to get the result I am looking for.

Have you read the ldapsearch man page?

I'm not sure what you mean by "admin right" in your question.

Whether the above ldapsearch command returns what you expect depends
on several factors, most of which have to do with you understanding
ldapsearch itself and its command line parameters, the configuration
of the slapd you're trying to query (such as the bind method it
expects and the access control that you've set up), and the nature of
the target directory's contents (such as the structure of its DIT).

I recommend that you spend much more time investigating and learning
about these things, then come back for help if your question is
still unanswered by what you've read.
