SYNTAX-VALIDATE.PL(8)       System Manager's Manual      SYNTAX-VALIDATE.PL(8)

NAME - Directory Server perl script for validating
       attribute syntax.

SYNOPSIS [-Z serverID] [-D rootdn] { -w password | -w - | -j
       filename } -b baseDN [-f filter] [-P protocol] [-h]

       Syntax validation checks every modification to attributes to make sure
       that the new value has the required syntax for that attribute type. All
       attribute syntaxes are validated against the definitions in RFC 4514.

       A summary of options is included below:

       -Z Server Identifier
              The server ID of the Directory Server instance.  If there is
              only one instance on the system, this option can be skipped.

       -D Root DN
              The Directory Manager DN, or root DN.  If not specified, the
              script will search the server instance configuration for the

       -w password
              The rootdn password.

       -w -
              Prompt for the rootdn password.

       -j password filename
              The name of the file that contains the root DN password.

       -b baseDN
              Gives the base DN for the entries to validate.

       -f filter
              Contains a search filter to use to select a subset of entries to
              validate. If this is not given, then all entries under the base
              DN are checked.

       -P protocol
              The connection protocol to connect to the Directory Server.
              Protocols are STARTTLS, LDAPS, LDAPI, and LDAP.  If this option
              is skipped, the most secure protocol that is available is used.
              For LDAPI, AUTOBIND is also available for the root user.

              Display usage

EXAMPLE -Z instance2 -D 'cn=directory manager' -w password
       -b 'dc=example,dc=com' -f 'cn=*' -P STARTTLS

              Note: security must be enabled to use protocol STARTTLS.  If
              STARTTLS is not available it will default to next
              strongest/available protocol automatically.

       Exit status is zero if no errors occur.  Errors result in a non-zero
       exit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error.
