How to query operational attributes with LDAP

fact

Novell eDirectory

Novell eDirectory 8.7.3 for All Platforms

fix

The following information was taken from the eDirectory Libraries for C Developer Kit which can be found at http://developer.novell.com

The information contained in the LDAP operational attributes are read-only. Clients cannot modify the attribute values. All of these operational attributes except creatorsName and ModifiersName are available only through LDAP. CreatorsName and modifiersName are available through LDAP and NDAP.

They are not returned in search results unless explicitly requested by name. They can be requested for all entries in an NDS directory.

Operational attributes listed in the developer kit:

createTimeStamp
creatorsName
entryFlags
federationBoundary
localEntryID
modifiersName
modifyTimeStamp
structuralObjectClass
subordinateCount
subschemaSubentry

Sample query to extract several operational attributes for user Fred

./ldapsearch -D cn=admin,o=novell -W -b o=novell cn=fred createtimestamp creatorsname entryflags localentryid modifytimestamp

version: 2

#
# filter: cn=fred
# requesting: createtimestamp creatorsname entryflags localentryid modifytimestamp
#

# fred,teds
dn: cn=fred,o=novell
creatorsname: CN=admin,O=novell
localEntryID: 32847
entryFlags: 0
createTimeStamp: 20020422213635Z
modifyTimeStamp: 20020423212816Z

# search result
search: 2
result: 0 Success
