Re: Symlinks in OpenLDAP

This seems to have worked pretty well. However, how do I delete an alias once created?

When I issue an LDAP delete with the DN of the alias, I am referred to the destination of the alias and neither it nor its alias is deleted.

A "symlink" in LDAP is an "alias". Create an entry with "alias" as structural object class and put the DN of the "real" entry into the "aliasedObjectName" attribute.
Note that alias handling is not fully implementd in all parts of OpenLDAP (e.g. bdb).
