================= LDAP Commands ======================
- list all the users under some group 

ldapsearch -x -b $dn -s sub "objectclass=posixGroup" | sed -n '/cn: $grp_name/,/dn:/p' | grep "^memberUid:" | awk '{print$2}' 

- List all created Users in LDAP
ldapsearch -x -b dc=ldap,dc=com -s sub "objectclass=posixAccount" | grep -i "^uid: " | awk '{print$2}' 

Modify LDAP group name usig LDIF file : /tmp/.modify.ldif
dn: cn=php,ou=Groups,dc=ldap,dc=com
changetype: modrdn
newrdn: cn=purval
deleteoldrdn: 1

ldapmodify -x -D "cn=admin,dc=ldap,dc=com" -w 123 -f /tmp/.modify

- Search All Users Password history

ldapsearch -LLL -x -h localhost -Z -D cn=admin,dc=ldap,dc=com "(&(objectclass=Person))" pwdHistory -w {password}

dn: cn=purval,ou=Users,dc=ldap,dc=com
pwdHistory: 20170131064459Z#
pwdHistory: 20170131093602Z#
pwdHistory: 20170201053907Z#
pwdHistory: 20170204074307Z#

dn: cn=bhavesh,ou=Users,dc=ldap,dc=com

dn: cn=mehul,ou=Users,dc=ldap,dc=com

dn: cn=lokesh,ou=Users,dc=ldap,dc=com

dn: cn=khushbu,ou=Users,dc=ldap,dc=com


- if Print All the password History of purval user then,

ldapsearch -LLL -x -h localhost -Z -D cn=admin,dc=ldap,dc=com "(&(objectclass=Person))" pwdHistory -w 123 | sed -n '/cn=purval/,/dn:/p' 

- Print all Users Password change time
ldapsearch -LLL -x -h localhost -Z -D cn=admin,dc=ldap,dc=com "(&(objectclass=Person))" modifyTimestamp -w {password}  

========Convert LDAP timezone to UTC to IST ==============

- default LDAP server timezone is Asia/Zulu
time is displayed in UTC standard format e.g. 20170206055543Z

- To covert this time format in normal time

echo "20170402125623" | sed -re 's/^([0-9]{8})([0-9]{2})([0-9]{2})([0-9]{2})$/\1\\ \2:\3:\4/' | xargs date -u -d   >/tmp/.date
output is: Mon Feb 6 11:25:43 UTC 2017 

 dateis=`cat /tmp/.date`
(This date format is UTC format, convert it to IST) 

eval "date --date='TZ=\"Asia/Zulu\" $dateis'"
output :Mon Feb 6 11:25:43 IST 2017
