Issue/Introduction

As the Dsquery command does not work on an Open LDAP server,  this article describes how to obtain the Bind DN from an Open LDAP server and then configure PGP Universal Server.

Resolution

Use the following command on the LDAP Server to obtain the Bind DN for a user in Open LDAP:

ldapsearch -h <domain name> -x -b "dc=domain,dc=com" "uid=username"

Example:

ldapsearch -h example.com -x -b "dc=example,dc=com" "uid=Administrator"
