Hi Shanu,

I think the LDIF constructs are right.
only on the primaryGroupID = (GID * 2) + 1001 I don't know?
and 'displayName' could be also 'cn'

from pdb_ldap.c:
       /* recommend that 'gecos' and 'displayName' should refer to the same
            * attribute OID.  userFullName depreciated, only used by Samba
            * primary rules of LDAP: don't make a new attribute when one is 
already defined
          * that fits your needs; using cn then displayName rather than 

         if (!get_single_attribute(ldap_struct, entry, "cn", fullname)) {
                 get_single_attribute(ldap_struct, entry, "displayName", 

I am working on an LDAP admin tool too, it's based on PHP4.
I have started a project 'mx-LDAP-admin' at
(I can send you a prototype; I want release the first alpha next weeks)

Do you make your tool opensource (GNU GPL)?
If so it would be nice if your projects could go together, if you are
