ldapdiff: Tool to synchronize ldap servers using ldif formatted input files


ldapdiff - Tool to synchronize ldap servers using ldif formatted input files


ldapdiff [options]


ldapdiff combines classical "diff" and "patch" functionality in one application. the difference is, that ldapdiff is not designed for use on flat ascii files, it is designed for "patching" ldap directories using ldif files.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
