Perl Net::LDAP Modify A Record

Posted on 2005-03-04

I've Been Using Perl with "Net::LDAP"

I've been extracting information from a few thousand records, and can "display" the results. (I have been for awhile)

When I wish to MODIFY a record, seems that all the "examples" on the Internet are extremely complicated.

I am able to bind, once I bind, shouldn't there be a 2-liner that enables me to make a modification to the record, such as so:

$dn is defined before this code.

    push @whatToChange, 'sn', "NewValue";
    my $result = $ldap->modify($dn,  changes => [ @whatToChange]);
Shouldn't those lines change the value (In Active Directory) of 'sn' to "NewValue" ??
