dig offer the ability to search based on something contained in the name ... like a wildcard search or something?
I'm trying to make a little script with a GUI wrapper for our helpdesk team. Ideally, I'd like them to be able to search the user's last name (something that is always present in the DNS record) and then I'll populate a pulldown with the possible options to choose from.
I'm unable to find a way to effectively have the equivalent of
nslookup *miller* ... it would be great to then get back
Name: sf-jacobmiller.localdomain.com Address: 10.10.10.121 Name: sf-justinmiller.localdomain.com Address: 10.10.10.144
..which I could then parse into a pulldown for them to pick from.
I have not yet looked into what's available with
ldapsearch which may be able to do what I'm looking for. My only requirement is that this is built into OSX and I won't need to install anything else, otherwise I'm open to any solutions you can offer. Thanks
