pst2ldif — extract contacts from a MS Outlook .pst file in .ldif format

Synopsis

pst2ldif [-V] [-b ldap-base] [-c class] [-d debug-file] [-l extra-line] [-o] [-h] pstfilename

Options

-V
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.
-o
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".
-h
Show summary of options. Subsequent options are then ignored.
