Re: Odd Error

> If I'm confused on the definition of a add/delete modification vs. a replace modification please help me out.

An add operation creates an attribute/value pair, a delete operation
removes an attribute/value pair, and a replace operation changes
attribute/value1 to attribute/value2

No, No, and No.  There is no NULL in LDAP, and no equivalent.

Remove the attribute.  If it formerly had a value and does not now
(string length 0) you want a delete operation.
