How can I delete a LDAP databse to start fresh?
I cannot use the normal ldap tools because I must have an invalid entry for my rootdn or my password:
I would like to delete the database so ldap thinks this is the very first entries again.
these are in my slapd.conf
suffix "dc=family, dc=com"
so I try this line:
[root@Webby openldap]# ldapadd -x -h localhost -D "cn=root,dc=WEBBY,dc=com" -f base.ldif -w secret
ldap_bind: Invalid credentials
now, if I get it, that _should_ work because I have the -D correct.
So that leaves:
I have encrypted passwords turned on so ldap doesn't see secret as secret because it's plaintext in slapd.conf
I have entries in my existing ldap that are preventing me from being "authenticated".
I cannot ldapdelete either for the same error message:
