Using LDAPSEARCH to return all Groups and OU's in an Active Directroy domain


What would the correct syntax be, using ldapsearch, to return all Groups\OU's and their nested Groups\OU's in an AD domain?
I am trying to query a Windows AD DC from a Linux Box and need to have this result returned to the Linux machine.

Thanks for any assistance

Take a look at this technet under "examples" as it will show you the syntax for All Groups and All OU's.

Hope this helps
Try -

ldapsearch -LLL  -H ldaphost -x  -D 'domain\binddn' -w 'binddnpasswd' -E pr=1000/noprompt -b 'ou=mydomain,dc=namepace,dc=domain,dc=com' '(|(objectClass=organizationalUnit)(objectClass=Group))'
