       ipa-ldap-updater - Update the IPA LDAP configuration


       ipa-ldap-updater [options] input_file(s)


       ipa-ldap-updater is utility which can be used to update the IPA LDAP server.

       An  update  file  describes  an LDAP entry and a set of operations to be performed on that
       entry. It can be used to add new entries or modify existing entries.

       Blank lines and lines beginning with # are ignored.

       There are 7 keywords:

           * default: the starting value
           * add: add a value to an attribute
           * remove: remove a value from an attribute
           * only: set an attribute to this
           * onlyifexist: set an attribute to this only if the entry exists
           * deleteentry: remove the entry
           * replace: replace an existing value, format is old::new
           * addifnew: add a new attribute and value only if the attribute doesn't already exist.
       Only works with single-value attributes.
           *  addifexist: add a new attribute and value only if the entry exists. This is used to
       update optional entries.

       The difference between the default and add keywords is if the DN of the entry exists  then
       default  is ignored. So for updating something like schema, which will be under cn=schema,
       you must always use add (because cn=schema is guaranteed to exist). It will not re-add the
       same information again and again.

       It  also  provides  some  things  that  can  be templated such as architecture (for plugin
       paths), realm and domain name.

       The available template variables are:

           * $REALM - the kerberos realm (EXAMPLE.COM)
           *  $FQDN  -  the  fully-qualified  domain  name  of  the  IPA  server  being   updated
           * $DOMAIN - the domain name (
           * $SUFFIX - the IPA LDAP suffix (dc=example,dc=com)
           * $ESCAPED_SUFFIX - the ldap-escaped IPA LDAP suffix
           * $LIBARCH - set to 64 on x86_64 systems to be used for plugin paths
           * $TIME - an integer representation of current time

       For base64 encoded values a double colon ('::') must be used between attribute and value.

       Base64 format examples:

       A few rules:

          1. Only one rule per line
          2.  Each  line  stands alone (e.g. an only followed by an only results in the last only
       being used)
          3. Adding a value that exists is ok. The request is ignored, duplicate values  are  not
          4. Removing a value that doesn't exist is ok. It is simply ignored.
          5.  If  a  DN  doesn't exist it is created from the 'default' entry and all updates are
          6. If a DN does exist the default values are skipped
          7. Only the first rule on a line is respected

       ipa-ldap-updater allows to execute update plugins.  Plugins to be executed  are  specified
       with following keyword, in update files:
           * plugin: name of plugin

       This keyword is not bounded to DN, and plugin names have to be registered in API.

       Additionally,  ipa-ldap-updater  can  update  the schema based on LDIF files.  Any missing
       object classes and attribute types are added, and differing ones are updated to match  the
       LDIF  file.   To enable this behavior, use the --schema-file options.  Schema files should
       be in LDIF format, and may only specify attributeTypes  and  objectClasses  attributes  of


       -d, --debug
              Enable debug logging when more verbose output is needed

       -u, --upgrade
              Upgrade an installed server in offline mode (implies --schema)

       -S, --schema-file
              Specify a schema file. May be used multiple times. Implies --schema.
