I have to query attributes for about 10 000 users. I have an ldapsearch query that works for a single user. Here is the releveant part, where I search for the
objectGUID attribute of user
ldapsearch -h somehost.com -D "CN=valid_user,DC=valid_everything" -q -b "OU=valid_ou,DC=valid_dc" -s sub "cn=abc123" -L objectGUID
I would like to put all my queries in a file, and use the
-f myqueries.txt option. Since this query will be carried out over SSL, I would like to avoid the 10k SSL negotiations I would get if I was to run 10k separate ldapsearch.
I tried with a file that looks like this :
(cn=abc123) (cn=lmn456) (cn=xyz789)
With this modified command line :
ldapsearch -v -h somehost.com -D "CN=valid_user,DC=valid_everything" -q -b "OU=valid_ou,DC=valid_dc" -s sub -f myqueries.txt -L objectGUID
But I always get an
Bad search filter error.
I was not able to determine what version of ldapsearch this is. It is running on a custom Linux distribution.
How can I use the
-f option to make ldapsearch use queries read from a file ?
