The ldapdelete command prints its error message to standard out. However, the
manpage states, "Exit status is 0 if no errors occur. Errors result in a
non-zero exit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error."
1. Try to delete an LDAP object that does not exist; execute a command like:
ldapdelete -x -D cn=Manager,dc=flyn,dc=org -W "cn=Domain
Users,ou=Group,dc=flyn,dc=org" 2> /dev/null
2. Execute "echo $?" to confirm exit status is non-zero.
3. Notice that ldapdelete printed error to standard out. The following was
Delete Result: No such object (32)
Matched DN: ou=group,dc=flyn,dc=org
The exit status was non-zero. According to the manpage the error message
go to standard error.
