SLAPDN(8C)                                                    SLAPDN(8C)

NAME         top

       slapdn - Check a list of string-represented LDAP DNs based on
       schema syntax

SYNOPSIS         top

       SBINDIR/slapdn [-d debug-level] [-f slapd.conf] [-F confdir]
       [-N|-P] [-o option[=value]] [-v] DN [...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Slapdn is used to check the conformance of a DN based on the
       schema defined in slapd(8) and that loaded via slapd.conf(5).  It
       opens the slapd.conf(5) configuration file or the slapd-config
       (5) backend, reads in the schema definitions, and then parses the
       DN list given on the command-line.

OPTIONS         top

       -d debug-level
              enable debugging messages as defined by the specified
              debug-level; see slapd(8) for details.

       -f slapd.conf
              specify an alternative slapd.conf(5) file.

       -F confdir
              specify a config directory.  If both -f and -F are
              specified, the config file will be read and converted to
              config directory format and written to the specified
              directory.  If neither option is specified, an attempt to
              read the default config directory will be made before
              trying to use the default config file. If a valid config
              directory exists then the default config file is ignored.

       -N     only output a normalized form of the DN, suitable to be
              used in a normalization tool; incompatible with -P.

       -o option[=value]
              Specify an option with a(n optional) value.  Possible
              generic options/values are:

                     syslog=<subsystems>  (see `-s' in slapd(8))
                     syslog-level=<level> (see `-S' in slapd(8))
                     syslog-user=<user>   (see `-l' in slapd(8))

       -P     only output a prettified form of the DN, suitable to be
              used in a check and beautification tool; incompatible with

       -v     enable verbose mode.

EXAMPLES         top

       To check a DN give the command:

            SBINDIR/slapdn -f /ETCDIR/slapd.conf -v DN
