Using ldapsearch to return operational attributes
You can use the plus sign (+) with ldapsearch to return all the operational attributes for entries. Operational attributes are attributes used for directory administration, and a directory server only returns them if you request them.
About this task
For example, to return all operational attributes for entries with the common name John Brown specify:
ldapsearch -h host "cn=John Brown" +
You can use the + syntax only with the directory servers that support the syntax, such as the Domino® LDAP service.
To return a specific operational attribute only, specify the attribute.
