yes you are 100% correct, and I am not that stupid to ignore LDIF. It is
too easy to get an LDIF export but our customer work with absolutely no
LDAP tools. Actually, they don't know what LDAP is and they will not
accept LDIF file nor accept using Lotus Notes/Thunderbird connected to
LDAP server, this is what I already tried. But any other suggestions?
