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


       /usr/sbin/slapdn [-d debug-level] [-f slapd.conf] [-F confdir] [-N|-P] [-o option[=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 or the
       slapd-config (5) backend, reads in the schema definitions, and then  parses  the  DN  list
       given on the command-line.


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

       -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
