ldapmodify man page states that:
The default for ldapmodify is to modify existing entries
Yet when I try to import an LDIF file with
ldapmodify I get the below error:
ldapmodify: modify operation type is missing at line X
Q1: Why, which arguments should I add to my ldapmodify command?
If I import an LDIF file using
ldapadd and the entry already exists I get the below error:
ldap_add: Already exists (68)
This can be ignored using the
-c switch (for continue), however ldap_add won't update existing entries. Instead, in order to update existing entries one should use
ldapmodify won't add missing entries.
Q2: Is there a way to import an LDIF files by creating missing entries AND updating existing ones at the same time?
