Re: Unique id for each ldap entry


I got your idea about entryUUID, but can u give me some idea about how can i retrieve the value of entryUUID for each entry if it is supported by LDAP system.

I m using "openldap-2.3.38", but i don't know whether it supports entryUUID or not.

Please tell me how can i get the values of entryUUID in case of "openldap-2.3.38"

Well, it also depends on the scope within which the ID has to be unique.

You might want to look at attribute entryUUID which is generated by the
LDAP server. The entryUUID never changes even when renaming the entry.
Not all LDAP servers support this though. OpenLDAP does.
