yes, you're right. i can just take a look at ldap.conf but there's several
- debian/ubuntu uses /etc/ldap/ldap.conf
- RHEL/CentOS uses /etc/openldap/ldap.conf
- custom compilations can use any path. ex: /usr/local/ldap/ldap.conf
- windows openldap uses... i don't really know :P
so what im trying to do is resolving configured base without knowing
anything about the client.
for example, this command gives me the server even if i dont know
anything about the conf:
ldapsearch -d1 -x -LLL "(uid=example)" uid 2>&1 | grep
im just a little bit surprised that i can't find any debuglevel that gives me the
Hmmm, that is a really interesting problem. I could not find any solution to it
from the man page
Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel. ldapsearch must be compiled
with LDAP_DEBUG defined for this option to have any effect.
that is just bloody useless, why do I have to google to find a sun man page that contains
the actual possible debug levels. Why is it not part of the man page in Red Hat / CentOS
Lets get rid of man pages save some disk space and find everything with google, who reads
man pages anyway.
