LDAP Query in Python

0 votes
How can I execute the following query in the ldap:

ldapsearch -h hostname -b dc=ernet,dc=in -x "(&(uid=w2lame)(objectClass=posixAccount))" gidnumber
ldapsearch -h hostname -b dc=ernet,dc=in -x "(&(gidNumber=1234)(objectClass=posixGroup))" cn

And also, use the variables obtained. Can anyone tell me how to do that?

You can use the "ldap" module. The code would look like:

    import ldap
    l = ldap.initialize('ldap://ldapserver')
    username = "uid=%s,ou=People,dc=mydotcom,dc=com" % username
    password = "my password"
      l.protocol_version = ldap.VERSION3
      l.simple_bind_s(username, password)
      valid = True
    except Exception, error:
      print error
