Dear All,

Does anyone know why -x should be added during using ldapsearch in LDAP authentication environment?

Like below input:
------------------------------------------------------------------
vsa5388903:~ # ldapsearch -x uid=cxxxxx dn
# extended LDIF
#
# LDAPv3
# base <dc=a1s,dc=dmzwdf,dc=saphosting,dc=corp> (default) with scope subtree
# filter: uid=cxxxxx
# requesting: dn
#

uid=cxxxxx,ou=users,ou=ADS,dc=a1s,dc=dmzwdf,dc=sap hosting,dc=corp

# search result
search: 2
result: 0 Success

# numResponses: 2
# numEntries: 1

Also how to use ldapsearch correctly in SUSE 11 for check LDAP issue?

Thanks
