- This is option have to be use if a LDAP attribute of object
has no possibility to search or do not know its own equality. This
attributes are rather seldom, nisNetgroupTriple is such an attribute. It
is used for clients of netgroups. If you are not sure use --mattrvalue
(-x) instaed. If you want to set a values you should provide them like
If you want to delete all values of that attribute you can just provide:
- Same as option --cfg.
- To specify the configuration file, if any. The default
location for the configuration file is:
If both are missing, you have to use this option --cfg to specify one.
- Same as option --debug.
- To see more output, what the internals is doing, you can

The suggestion is not to use debug output for production code.
- Same as option --help
- Prints brief help message.
- This is option have to be use if a LDAP object has to be
created. This option requires always an attribute and a value. Therefore
only this syntax is possible:

to create a object but forget the value.
The "m" stands for multiple. So it is possible to give the option
- Same as option --object
- This option is used to specify the object on which the
command is operating. Make sure you choose the right object. Of course
this will also fail when the object is not fetchable with (in the objects
list of) --task.
- Same as option --task.
- This option defines the "task name" the command
is operating with. A "task name" is a certain command inside the
CipUX Task Library. For example "cipux_task_create room". You
can easily define new tasks in the configuration file. The default
location of this file is /etc/cipux/cipux-task.yaml.
- Same as option --version.
- Prints the version and exits.
- Same as option --mattrvalue.
