Re: Using ldapdelete to delete a user from a group

ldapdelete removes entries from LDAP. You are trying to modify an entry (namely cn=sales,ou=Group,dc=unfiw,dc=com). Use ldapmodify (man ldapmodify for the syntax you should use)

Thanks for your reply.

It doesn't look like there are any bogus characters. Here's vi with "se
list" on the slapcat output:

dn: cn=sales,ou=Group,dc=unfiw,dc=com$
creatorsName: cn=manager,dc=unfiw,dc=com$
createTimestamp: 20020605230613Z$
objectClass: posixGroup$
objectClass: top$
cn: sales$
gidNumber: 110$
memberUid: johnd$
memberUid: joe$
memberUid: rick$
memberUid: sam$
memberUid: tinah$
modifiersName: cn=manager,dc=unfiw,dc=com$
modifyTimestamp: 20030204223352Z$

Guess I can load the whole thing into a file and modify it. That is sure

And "sales" looks like this:

dn: cn=sales,ou=Group,dc=unfiw,dc=com
objectClass: posixGroup
objectClass: top
cn: sales
gidNumber: 110
memberUid: johnd
memberUid: joe
memberUid: rick
memberUid: sam
memberUid: tinah

Looks good enough to me. Just a shot in the dark: make sure that /none/
of the RDNs in the respective entries have spaces at the end, when you
do a 'slapcat -l' on the database and vi '/ $' or sed it.
