pst2ldif — extract contacts from a MS Outlook .pst file in .ldif format
pst2ldif [-V] [-b ldap-base] [-c class] [-d debug-file] [-l extra-line] [-o] [-h] pstfilename
Show program version. Subsequent options are then ignored.
- -b ldap-base
Sets the ldap base value used in the dn records. You probably want to use something like "o=organization, c=US".
- -c class
Sets the objectClass values for the contact items. This class needs to be defined in the schema used by your LDAP server, and at a minimum it must contain the ldap attributes given below. This option may be specified multiple times to generate entries with multiple object classes.
- -d debug-file
Specify name of debug log file. The log file is now an ascii file, instead of the binary file used in previous versions.
- -l extra-line
Specify an extra line to be added to each ldap entry. This option may be specified multiple times to add multiple lines to each ldap entry.
Use the old ldap schema, rather than the default new ldap schema. The old schema generates multiple postalAddress attributes for a single entry. The new schema generates a single postalAddress (and homePostalAddress when available) attribute with $ delimiters as specified in RFC4517. Using the old schema also generates two extra leading entries, one for "dn:ldap base", and one for "dn: cn=root, ldap base".
Show summary of options. Subsequent options are then ignored.

The following attributes are generated for the new ldap schema:
