Trying to run LDAP query from Linux command line

view full story

http://stackoverflow.com – I want to run an LDAP query from a command line on a linux system. (CentOS 5.8) i.e., I want to run the following query to look up a user's DN: (&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=username)) How can I run this LDAP query from a linux command line and have it return query results for the provided username? I have red up on using LDAPSEARCH but cannot locate it on my CentOS 5.8 distribution. (HowTos)
