You count them :) Kidding aside, to be 100% sure how many, use slapcat,
grepping for '^dn: '. Make sure slapd is turned of/shutdown (I've heard
'rumors' that this isn't necessary on later 2.1 slapd's).

No, this is the number of objects returned from the search. The thing
is, there's usually a limit on how many objects you CAN retreive (I think
the default is a maximum of 500, but this can be changed in slapd.conf).

Do you mean 'adding attributes to an already existing object' or 'adding
a new object'? The first is 'with a modify' (man ldapmodify).

ldapdelete DN_OF_OBJECT


[papadoc.pts/10]$ ldapsearch -LLL -x uid=turbo dn
dn: uid=turbo,ou=People,dc=fredriksson,dc=com
[papadoc.pts/10]$ ldapdelete uid=turbo,ou=People,dc=fredriksson,dc=com
(I'm not going to try this, I don't want to shoot myself in the foot/head :)
