Technically, dn is not an attribute (though our server treats
it as such). I recommend this instead requesting attribute
ldapsearch "(attribute=*)" 1.1
As no attribute type has the OID 1.1, the following will
only return the entry without any attributes.

You can also use replace:
echo "dn: $dn"
echo "changetype: modify"
echo "replace: attribute"
Replacing the attribute with no values also deletes the
attribute and should be successful even where the attribute
does not exist.
For details see slapd.replog(5) and ldapmodify(1).
