       slapdn  -  Check  a list of string-represented LDAP DNs based on schema


       /usr/sbin/slapdn [-d level] [-f slapd.conf] [-F confdir] [-N | -P]  [-o
       name[=value]] [-v] DN [...]


       Slapdn  is  used  to  check the conformance of a DN based on the schema
       defined in slapd(8) and that loaded via slapd.conf(5).   It  opens  the
       slapd.conf(5)  configuration file, reads in the schema definitions, and
       then parses the DN list given on the command-line.


       -d level
              enable debugging messages as defined by the specified level; see
              slapd(8) for details.

       -f slapd.conf
              specify an alternative slapd.conf(5) file.

       -F confdir
              specify  a  config  directory.  If both -f and -F are specified,
              the config file will be read and converted to  config  directory
              format  and  written  to  the  specified  directory.  If neither
              option is specified, an  attempt  to  read  the  default  config
              directory  will  be made before trying to use the default config
              file. If a valid config directory exists then the default config
              file is ignored.

       -N     only  output a normalized form of the DN, suitable to be used in
              a normalization tool; incompatible with -P.

       -o option[=value]
              Specify an option with a(n optional)  value.   Possible  generic
              options/values are:

                     syslog=<subsystems>  (see ‘-s’ in slapd(8))
                     syslog-level=<level> (see ‘-S’ in slapd(8))
                     syslog-user=<user>   (see ‘-l’ in slapd(8))

       -P     only  output a prettified form of the DN, suitable to be used in
              a check and beautification tool; incompatible with -N.

       -v     enable verbose mode.


       To check a DN give the command:

            /usr/sbin/slapdn -f //etc/ldap/slapd.conf -v DN
