       slapdn  -  Check  a list of string-represented LDAP DNs based on schema


       /usr/sbin/slapdn [-d debug-level] [-f slapd.conf] [-F confdir]  [-N|-P]
       [-o option[=value]] [-v] DN [...]


       Slapdn  is  used  to  check the conformance of a DN based on the schema
       defined in slapd(8) and that loaded via slapd.conf(5).   It  opens  the
       slapd.conf(5) configuration file or the slapd-config (5) backend, reads
       in the schema definitions, and then parses the DN  list  given  on  the


       -d debug-level
              enable  debugging  messages  as  defined by the specified debug-
              level; see slapd(8) for details.

       -f slapd.conf
              specify an alternative slapd.conf(5) file.

       -F confdir
              specify a config directory.  If both -f and  -F  are  specified,
              the  config  file will be read and converted to config directory
              format and written  to  the  specified  directory.   If  neither
              option  is  specified,  an  attempt  to  read the default config
              directory will be made before trying to use the  default  config
              file. If a valid config directory exists then the default config
              file is ignored.

       -N     only output a normalized form of the DN, suitable to be used  in
              a normalization tool; incompatible with -P.

       -o option[=value]
              Specify  an  option  with a(n optional) value.  Possible generic
              options/values are:

                     syslog=<subsystems>  (see `-s' in slapd(8))
                     syslog-level=<level> (see `-S' in slapd(8))
                     syslog-user=<user>   (see `-l' in slapd(8))

       -P     only output a prettified form of the DN, suitable to be used  in
              a check and beautification tool; incompatible with -N.

       -v     enable verbose mode.


       To check a DN give the command:

            /usr/sbin/slapdn -f //etc/ldap/slapd.conf -v DN
