Please enhance the character limitation present in dxsearch which is restricts the and wraps the longer lines in attributes ( say dn ) to next line. This makes ldif data inconsistent.
While the LDIF format displayed by dxsearch is actually valid LDIF, it's not a useful format for command line scripts that aren't LDIF savvy.
A couple of short term options until this is investigated:
* Use ldapsearch with the "-o ldif-wrap=no" option to disable line wrapping
* Pipe the output of search into | sed -e ':a' -e 'N' -e '$!ba' -e 's/\n //g'
But does same applies to dxsearch ?
also does ldapsearch comes with ca directory installation ?
DXsearch provides a subset of ldapsearch's (OpenLDAP) functionality. We will review this enhancement request.
CA Directory doesn't ship with ldapsearch, but most Unix distributions ship a version of this tool.
I am working on RHEL servers prominently don't openldap client installed by default may due to some compliance.
I would request you guys to look into this and see if it can help us all, that's why coined this here.
