Solaris 11.4: LDAP changes for ldapsearch & ldapmodify

With the release of Oracle Solaris 11.4 Beta and the move over to OpenLDAP, you will notice ldap commands have changed. To help myself and may be some others I will document the changes for reference.

     -D "CN=auser,OU=Users,DC=dcs,DC=bbk,DC=ac,DC=uk" \  
     -w MyPassword \  
     "samaccountname=auser" uidNumber
