Thank you, I appreciate the help. As you suggested, I will use the
ipa-admintools package.

That makes sense.

Your best bet is to use the ipa-admintools package. This way you don't
have to work about the LDAP internals. If you have some need for
something the tools can't provide you can always fall back to using
ldapsearch.

You probably don't to install this on every client.
