in reply to Comparing ldap data using net ldap

Another way could be to dump the contents of both directories to LDIF files (e.g. with Net::LDAP::LDIF or ldap server tools), sorted by dn (e.g. with Net::LDAP::Control::SortResult) and then iterate over the two LDIF files and compare objects one by one.

if o1 eq o2: no change, read next both objects if o1 lt o2: add, read next object from LDIF1 if o1 gt o2: delete, read next object from LDIF2

Disadvantage: this way you usually can't compare values from userPassword.

    my ldap entries have millions entry. Would Net::LDAP::LDIF be able to handle it; does it has a call back option? Thanks.

      I haven't tried Net::LDAP::LDIF with several million entries, but I think it can do it. For writing the objects to the LDIF you don't need callbacks from Net::LDAP::LDIF, only the callback from Net::LDAP::Search could be a good idea. If you dump your search result in a sorted way, you can read the objects one-by-one from the LDIF with a code similar to the synopsis from Net::LDAP::LDIF.

      Best regards,
      perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."
