ldapsearch command not working on knox

New Contributor

On using "ldapsearch" to find groups on knox the output I am getting is "ldapsearch: command not found" . Am I missing something?

@Bhushan kumar What do you mean by ldapsearch not working on Knox? I am assuming that you are trying to do ldapsearch from host where knox is installed and getting "ldapsearch: command not found" which means ldap client utilities are not installed.

Installing openldap-clients should fix the issue.

Below is example from Centos7:

[root@pk-test4 ~]# yum provides ldapsearch
