deleting bad referral
Hi, I am new at this whole ldap thing and I think I may have messed up my
server. I was hoping to run my scenario by you all and verify if this is
in fact a bug as it seems.
I am running OpenLDAP 2.0.11 on a redhat 7.0 box using sasl. I have been
learning by pidding around, and at one point I entered an entry like this:
dn: firstname.lastname@example.org, ou=People, o=Education Department,
o=Tennessee Tech University, c=US
ref: cn=Will Holcomb, ou=People, o=Honors, o=Tennessee Tech University,
I understand now what referrals are and that it should have been a full
url, but hindsight is often clear. =)
Anyhow, when I search I get:
$ ldapsearch -x -b \
'ou=People, o=Education Department, o=Tennessee Tech University, c=US' \
# search reference
Which is decidedly not the whole dn, just the beginning. It bothered me,
so I tried to delete it:
$ ldapdelete 'email@example.com, ou=People, o=Education Department, o=Tennessee Tech University, c=US'
SASL/DIGEST-MD5 authentication started

SASL installing layers
Delete Result: Referral (10)
Matched DN: firstname.lastname@example.org, ou=People, o=Education Department, o=Tennessee Tech University, c=US
Again the partial dn, and more importantly it doesn't do anything. The
entry is still there.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am really at a loss. This whole
ldap thing is really cool though; I'm trying to set one up for us here at
school and I think it will be really helpful.
