-e = general extended operation
-E = search extended operation
passwordPolicy is a general extended operation
I have no man page like this for OpenLDAP. Which man page is this? It sounds
strange to say something about extended operations.
-e and -E are for specifying extended *controls* along with the LDAP (search)
Excerpt from ldapsearch(1):
Specify general extensions with -e and search extensions with
-E. ´!´ indicates criticality.
