Bear in mind:
1. If at least one attribute value in the DN contains non-ASCII chars the LDIF
contains base64-encoded DN values which you can't easily search&replace with a
2. Also long DN values might be split over two or more lines (line
continuations) in the LDIF file. This also makes simple search&replace nearly
So in general the safest approach is to write a small script using your
favourite scripting language and a decent LDIF reader/writer module and
rewrite all DN values therein.
