yum install Wildcards

I just want to install openldap everything ,

I tried yum openldap* , it pops the openldap is installed , I checked only openldap is installed but other openldap related package eg. openldap-servers , openldap-client , openldap-development in not installed , would advise does yum support Wildcards ?

Re: yum install Wildcards

BASH expands openldap*, so if you have a file/dir named openldap* in the current working directory in the shell then yum will exhibit the behaviour you saw; you need to either escape the wildcard:
yum install openldap\*

or use quotes:
yum install "openldap*"
