authentication.conf userbaseDN attribute being read as multiple stanzas

I am working on a UNIX platform where in creating the authentication.conf file using vi or vim, I have multiple LDAP entries that is being wrapped to the next line. Splunk is interpreting this as incomplete stanzas. I am unsure of how to fix this issue. I cannot edit Unix config files to fix the text editor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm pretty sure you can use a trailing \ as a line break character. For example:

[stanza]
key = value line 1 \
          value line 2

That said, it seems unusual that vi would enforce line wrapping as line BREAKING. Can you post your actual config stanza?

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?

Good news! The event's keynotes and many of its breakout sessions are now available online, and still totally FREE!
