Use a directory browser to investigate what attributes an object has.
Apache project has a GUI one. For the CLI, I have a script like the
following which dumps out all attributes for a provided $user:
args="-LLL -x -z 0 -H $ldapuri -D $binddn -w $bindpw"
ldapsearch $args -b $base -s sub $filter
Seems odd that eDirectory doesn't provide distinguishedName in some form.
