We want to pull down all IDs off of the ACF2 z/OS logonid VSAM data base. LDAP "sizelimit" has a max value of 32767. Presently, we have 37,000 records on our LIDS VSAM database. How we can pull this many LIDs with ACFLDAP?

Description

"ldapsearch" is used to pull down logonids from he ACF2 z/OS logonid database. The "sizelimit" option is one of the Global options in the slapd.conf file(Configuration File). "sizelimit" specifies the maximum number of objects returned to the requesting application from a search operation.

Solution

The "sizelimit" option on a ldapsearch is defined as follows (from the CA LDAP Server for z/OS Administrator Guide):

sizelimit

(optional) Specifies the maximum number of objects returned to the requesting application from a search operation. Use this option before any database section to make it the server default value. Configure this within a database section to make it database-specific. If both a server value and database value are supplied, the database value will override the server value. The valid range of values is 0 to 32767. The default is 500. For example:

sizelimit 1000.

A "sizelimit" of 0 imposes no limits. This will allow you to do a ldpasearch and pull down all of the logonids from the ACF2 LOGONID database.
