           ldapsearch is a shell-accessible interface  to  the  ldap_search_ext(3)
           library call.
           ldapsearch  opens a connection to an LDAP server, binds, and performs a
           search using specified parameters.   The filter should conform  to  the
           string  representation  for  search filters as defined in RFC 4515.  If
           not provided, the default filter, (objectClass=*), is used.
           If ldapsearch finds one or more entries, the  attributes  specified  by
           attrs  are returned.  If * is listed, all user attributes are returned.
           If + is listed, all operational attributes are returned.  If  no  attrs
           are  listed,  all user attributes are returned.  If only 1.1 is listed,
           no attributes will be returned.
           The search results are displayed using an  extended  version  of  LDIF.
           Option -L controls the format of the output.


           -V[V]  Print  version info.  If -VV is given, only the version informa-
                  tion is printed.
           -d debuglevel
                  Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel.  ldapsearch must  be
                  compiled  with  LDAP_DEBUG  defined  for this option to have any
           -n     Show what would be done, but don't actually perform the  search.
                  Useful for debugging in conjunction with -v.
           -v     Run  in  verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard
           -c     Continuous operation mode. Errors are reported,  but  ldapsearch
                  will  continue  with  searches.  The  default  is  to exit after
                  reporting an error.  Only useful in conjunction with -f.
           -u     Include the User Friendly Name form of  the  Distinguished  Name
                  (DN) in the output.
           -t[t]  A  single  -t  writes retrieved non-printable values to a set of
                  temporary files.  This is useful for dealing  with  values  con-
           -L     Search results are  display  in  LDAP  Data  Interchange  Format
                  detailed  in  ldif(5).   A  single  -L  restricts  the output to
                   A second -L disables comments.  A third -L disables printing of
                  the  LDIF version.  The default is to use an extended version of
           -S attribute
                  Sort the entries returned based on attribute. The default is not
                  to  sort entries returned.  If attribute is a zero-length string
                  (""), the entries are sorted by the components of their  Distin-
                  guished  Name.   See  ldap_sort(3)  for  more details. Note that
                  ldapsearch normally prints out entries as it receives them.  The
                  use  of the -S option defeats this behavior, causing all entries
                  to be retrieved, then sorted, then printed.
           -b searchbase
                  Use searchbase as the starting point for the search  instead  of
                  the default.
           -s {base|one|sub|children}
                  Specify  the scope of the search to be one of base, one, sub, or
                  children to specify a base object, one-level, subtree, or  chil-
                  dren search.  The default is sub.  Note: children scope requires
                  LDAPv3 subordinate feature extension.
           -a {never|always|search|find}
                  Specify how aliases dereferencing is done.   Should  be  one  of
                  never, always, search, or find to specify that aliases are never
                  dereferenced, always dereferenced, dereferenced when  searching,
                  or  dereferenced  only  when  locating  the  base object for the
                  search.  The default is to never dereference aliases.
           -l timelimit
                  wait at most timelimit seconds for  a  search  to  complete.   A
                  timelimit  of  0  (zero) or none means no limit.  A timelimit of
                  max means the maximum integer  allowable  by  the  protocol.   A
                  server  may  impose a maximal timelimit which only the root user
                  may override.
           -z sizelimit
                  retrieve at most sizelimit entries for a search.  A sizelimit of
                  0  (zero)  or none means no limit.  A sizelimit of max means the
                  maximum integer allowable by the protocol.  A server may  impose
                  a maximal sizelimit which only the root user may override.
           -f file
                  Read a series of lines from file, performing one LDAP search for
                  each line.  In this case, the filter given on the  command  line
                  is  treated  as a pattern where the first and only occurrence of
                  %s is replaced with a line from file.  Any other  occurrence  of
           -W     Prompt for simple authentication.  This is used instead of spec-
                  ifying the password on the command line.
           -w passwd
                  Use passwd as the password for simple authentication.
           -y passwdfile
                  Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password  for  simple
           -H ldapuri
                  Specify  URI(s)  referring to the ldap server(s); a list of URI,
                  separated by whitespace or commas is expected; only  the  proto-
                  col/host/port  fields  are  allowed.   As  an  exception,  if no
                  host/port is specified, but a DN is, the DN is used to  look  up
                  the  corresponding  host(s) using the DNS SRV records, according
                  to RFC 2782.  The DN must be a non-empty sequence of AVAs  whose
                  attribute  type  is "dc" (domain component), and must be escaped
                  according to RFC 2396.
           -h ldaphost
                  Specify an alternate host on which the ldap server  is  running.
                  Deprecated in favor of -H.
           -p ldapport
                  Specify  an  alternate TCP port where the ldap server is listen-
                  ing.  Deprecated in favor of -H.
           -P {2|3}
                  Specify the LDAP protocol version to use.
           -e [!]ext[=extparam]
           -E [!]ext[=extparam]
                  Specify general extensions with -e and  search  extensions  with
                  -E.  ?!? indicates criticality.
                  General extensions:
                    [!]assert=<filter>    (an RFC 4515 Filter)
                    !authzid=<authzid>    ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
                    [!]bauthzid           (RFC 3829 authzid control)
                    [!]postread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
                    [!]preread[=<attrs>]  (a comma-separated attribute list)
                    abandon,cancel,ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel,
           -o opt[=optparam]
                  Specify general options.
                  General options:
                    nettimeout=<timeout>  (in seconds, or "none" or "max")
                    ldif-wrap=<width>     (in columns, or "no" for no wrapping)
           -O security-properties
                  Specify SASL security properties.
           -I     Enable  SASL  Interactive  mode.   Always prompt.  Default is to
                  prompt only as needed.
           -Q     Enable SASL Quiet mode.  Never prompt.
           -N     Do not use reverse DNS to canonicalize SASL host name.
           -U authcid
                  Specify the authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the  ID
                  depends on the actual SASL mechanism used.
           -R realm
                  Specify  the  realm of authentication ID for SASL bind. The form
                  of the realm depends on the actual SASL mechanism used.
           -X authzid
                  Specify the requested authorization ID for SASL  bind.   authzid
                  must be one of the following formats: dn:<distinguished name> or
           -Y mech
                  Specify the SASL mechanism to be  used  for  authentication.  If
                  it's  not  specified, the program will choose the best mechanism
                  the server knows.
           -Z[Z]  Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended operation. If
                  you  use  -ZZ, the command will require the operation to be suc-


           If one or more entries are found, each entry  is  written  to  standard
           output in LDAP Data Interchange Format or ldif(5):
               version: 1
               # bjensen, example, net
               dn: uid=bjensen,dc=example,dc=net
               objectClass: person
               objectClass: dcObject
           will  perform a subtree search (using the default search base and other
           parameters defined in ldap.conf(5)) for entries with a surname (sn)  of
           smith.   The  common name (cn), surname (sn) and telephoneNumber values
           will be retrieved and printed to standard  output.   The  output  might
           look something like this if two entries are found:
               dn: uid=jts,dc=example,dc=com
               cn: John Smith
               cn: John T. Smith
               sn: Smith
               sn;lang-en: Smith
               sn;lang-de: Schmidt
               telephoneNumber: 1 555 123-4567
               dn: uid=sss,dc=example,dc=com
               cn: Steve Smith
               cn: Steve S. Smith
               sn: Smith
               sn;lang-en: Smith
               sn;lang-de: Schmidt
               telephoneNumber: 1 555 765-4321
           The command:
               ldapsearch -LLL -u -t "(uid=xyz)" jpegPhoto audio
           will perform a subtree search using the default search base for entries
           with user id of "xyz".  The user friendly form of the entry's  DN  will
           be output after the line that contains the DN itself, and the jpegPhoto
           and audio values will be retrieved and written to temporary files.  The
           output might look like this if one entry with one value for each of the
           requested attributes is found:
               dn: uid=xyz,dc=example,dc=com
               ufn: xyz, example, com
               audio:< file:///tmp/ldapsearch-audio-a19924
               jpegPhoto:< file:///tmp/ldapsearch-jpegPhoto-a19924
           This command:
               ldapsearch -LLL -s one -b "c=US" "(o=University*)" o description
           will perform a one-level search at the c=US level for all entries whose
           organization  name  (o)  begins with University.  The organization name
           and description attribute values will be retrieved and printed to stan-
           dard output, resulting in output similar to this:
               dn: o=University of Alaska Fairbanks,c=US
               o: University of Alaska Fairbanks
               description: Preparing Alaska for a brave new yesterday
               description: leaf node only
               o: UFl
               description: Warper of young minds


           Exit  status  is  zero if no errors occur.  Errors result in a non-zero
           exit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error.
