The way you should deal with them is quite similar, but you need to do one additional step: use Base64 encoding to pass UTF-8s to LDAP.
So, if you find yourself facing the following problem:
- ldapmodify: no DN specified
- ldap_add: Invalid DN syntax (34)
additional info: R004054 Invalid UTF-8 character found in string value (srv_explode_dn_int)
- Prepare your data in a text file but before pasting/typing in set encodingo to UTF-8, eg:
dn: cn=Kłak Szósty,ou=1,ou=2,O=myorg,C=PL
cn: Kłak Szósty
- Now, use any tool to encodee UTF-8 strings into Base64 to get something like:
and be sure that you've added second colon (:) before b64 values!!
for Base64 encode I use N++ MIME plugin.
- Having "based" your strings, now convert the file to ANSI (save as ANSI). This does not change the way it looks on the screen
- Copy to the target system using "binary" transfer mode and use it as an input to ldap shell tools (ldapadd, ldapmodify)
