LDF File Line Breaks

Guest

Hi there,

When I export my groups using ldifde.exe, the LDF file has many line breaks
that make it difficult to "Find/Replace" for editing.

Any Ideas why it would be putting line breaks in the file. When I exported
my users I had no problems.

this is the command i am using
ldifde -f c:\exportgrp.ldf -s servername-t 3268 -d "ou=OU,dc=domain,dc=com"
-p subtree -r "(&(objectCategory=group)(objectClass=group))" -l
"cn,sAMAccountName,groupType,objectClass,member"

any help would be appreciated.

Mike

Mike,

Can you give us an example of the .ldf file with the line breaks? I have
never had this problem before.....Can not quite visualize what you mean...

Do not know off of the top of my head why this could be. I did notice that
you are using -t 3268. I generally use -t 389. Doubt that this has
anything to do with it ( but it is something different.... ).

Cary,

I think Mike means the way ldifde will create an output where each attribute
is on a separate line. Maybe csvde would be the better solution.
