This one of Louis Van Belle's scripts. 

He is usually watching the list. 

Sorry to bother you.

I have run Louis' script to check the database. The error email has many
"ldapcmp FAILED" entries like this: 

'CN=Test 5. User,OU=dtusers,OU=dtobjects,DC=dtshrm,DC=dt'
'CN=Test 5. User,OU=dtusers,OU=dtobjects,DC=dtshrm,DC=dt'
[ldap://dtdc04.dtshrm.dt.]   <<< period (.)
    Attributes found only in ldap://dtdc03.dtshrm.dt:
        CN    <<< CAPS
    Attributes found only in ldap://dtdc04.dtshrm.dt.:   <<< period (.)
        cn    <<< small case

The only difference I can find that happens repeatedly is the period (.)
following the "[ldap://dtdc04.dtshrm.dt.]" and obviously the "CN" and
the "cn" capitalization differences. These differences seem to be common
throughout the error email. 

Having never run this script, are these entry differences causing the
failure? Where do I adjust the entries?
