LDIFDE

Is it possible to export the contents of one OU using
LDIFDE?

I can export the user portion of AD but I am having
trouble understanding what to manipulate to allow a single
OU's contents to be exported to file. Changing the
objectclass to OU dosent seem to work. The OU that I am
looking to export is an OU within and OU. This is the
script I have been attempting to use.

ldifde -f Exportuser.ldf -s wrdc -d "dc=rsdwr" -p subtree -
r "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)
(givenname=*))" -
l "cn,givenName,objectclass,samAccountName"

Also, does ldifde export passwords as well?

Any help would be appreciated.

What exactly are you trying to dump? If you wish to dump
all objects in an OU, just use your syntax below but for
all object types (ldifde -f Exportuser.ldf -s wrdc -
d "dc=rsdwr" -p subtree). The -d parameter should include
the full path to the OU whose objects are to be exported.

I doubt LDIFDE can export passwords - they are not stored
in AD as passwords in plain text, they are stored as
hashes of the original password.

Reply to the NG with your *precise* requirements from
LDIFDE and someone will be able to help.
