LDAP Directory Interchange FormatThe LDIF format is used to convey directory information (content records) or a description of a set of changes made to directory entries (change records). An LDIF file consists of a series of records separated by line separators.Records can be Change Records or Content Records. Content Records are usually the result from an LDAP query. They have a basic format of name-value pairs (usually "attribute name":"some value" - such as CN: David). Change Records contain a set of commands for a particular entry (such as add, delete, or modify). They are used when you want to modify entries within your directory.
