ldapdiff — Tool to synchronize ldap servers using ldif formatted input files

Synopsis

ldapdiff [options]

Description

ldapdiff combines classical "diff" and "patch" functionality in one application. the difference is, that ldapdiff is not designed for use on flat ascii files, it is designed for "patching" ldap directories using ldif files.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

-p profile
Name of the profile to use from the configuration file.
-s local[0-7]
Log to syslog.
