Check LDAP entry presence


This Nagios plugin checks if a given entry is present in an LDAP directory.

It does a simple search with the entry DN as base value, and base as scope value.


Required Perl modules:

  • Net::LDAP
  • Getopt::Std

Edit the script to modify some default parameters:

  • timeout: time in second for LDAP connection timeout (default: 5)
  • version: LDAP version to use (default: 3)

Other parameters are set as script options (see below).


$ perl -H hostname [-p port] [-D binddn -W bindpw] -b dn

Mandatory Options

-H LDAP server hostname or IP, or LDAP URI
-b DN of the entry to check (base of the LDAP search)

Other options

-p LDAP server port (not working if LDAP URI is set in -H)
-D Bind DN
-W Bind password


This plugin, along with all other Nagios plugins from this site, can be downloaded in a single archive.
