Re: ldapsearch using entryCSN

My mistake, main problem solved.

Spaces are not allowed in ldap queries. In fact, I didn't get "no result", I got one message "Bad search filter" that was not handled correctly.

I changed my filters so that it now uses the createTimeStamp and modifyTimeStamp attributes.
Using "(&(objectClass=groupOfUniqueNames)(modifyTimeStamp<=20091224))", I retrieve the entries that haven't been modified since 2009/12/24.

Caution : this filter cannot be applied to the entryCSN attribute as it makes OpenLDAP shutdown.

Best Regards.

I'm trying to search entries in an OpenLDAP (v2.4.7) directory using their last modification date as a criteria. Digging in the schemas, I couldn't find an attribute that contained such a value. The only thing I found was the internal attribute "entryCSN" used by OpenLDAP to manage synchronization.

I tried to do several ldapsearch queries, but I couldn't manage to obtain a decent result.

Using "(&(objectClass=groupOfUniqueNames))"
=> I get every group of the directory. I can see that lots of them were modified in 2009

Related problem :

Using "(&(objectClass=groupOfUniqueNames)(entryCSN<=20091224))"
=> The slapd2.4 process stops without returning anything.

Using "(&(objectClass=groupOfUniqueNames)(entryCSN <= 20091224))"
(The same query with spaces)
=> I don’t get any result. Shouldn't I retrieve the entries modified before 2010/12/24 ?

Using "(&(objectClass=groupOfUniqueNames)(entryCSN >= 20091224))"
=> I don’t get any result. Shouldn't I retrieve the entries modified after 2010/12/24 ?

- Does anyone know how to filter entries using their entryCSN?

- Btw, is it even possible?

Best regards
