Can't delete entry (renewed)
I have run into a problem on two occasions where an ldapdelete operation
won't work. The entry in the database stubbornly refuses to be deleted.
The error that occurs when ldapdelete is run is:
"Delete Result: Internal (implementation specific) error (80)
Additional info: DN index delete failed"
The log entry for the attempt reads:
"=> bdb_dn2id_delete: subtree (uid=username,ou=people,dc=example,dc=net)
delete failed: -30990"
A search on the entry in the database succeeds and all the objects and
attributes look normal.
I noticed that in a previous thread
this issue was discussed and Kurt said that the issue was fixed in
openldap-2.1.5. But I am running 2.1.9 and this still occurs. Also
using db-4.0.14-14 on RedHat 8.0. I
ran db_recover and still I cannot delete the entries.
Anyone know what might cause this to occur? Anyone know of any way to
force deletion of an entry when this problem occurs?
