The directory must authenticate the user that executes the ldapsearch command before it allows the user access to site information. The command must specify one of the following sets of authentication information, depending on the binding scheme the directory uses for user authentication.

Binding Method ldapsearch Options Description
Simple -x -D user_principal_name -W -ZZ
  • -x, -D, -W and -ZZ specify simple binding and associated protection.
  • user_principal_name identifies (in UPN form) the user running the command, for example:


DIGEST-MD5 [Deprecated] -Y DIGEST-MD5 -U simple_user_name
  • -Y DIGEST-MD5 specifies the binding type
  • -U is the simple user name, derived from the directory sAMAccountName attribute
The DIGEST-MD5 authentication protocol used by LDAP is deprecated. Teradata strongly recommends you use simple binding with TLS protection, and stop using DIGEST-MD5.
