I ran slapadd to populate the 2.2 server. Some of my conversions were bad so I want to remove all the entries and run the population again. I delete everything in my database directory via "rm /var/lib/ldap/*", and verify everything is gone via "ls -l /var/lib/ldap/".> However, when I then start the server back up, it
starts without errors and if I do a search I see all of the entries of my fully populated directory. "ls -l /var/lib/ldap/" reveals that all of the files have returned (__db.001 __db.002 __db.003 __db.004 __db.005 dn2id.bdb id2entry.bdb log.0000000001). I stop the server, delete them all again, and search the entire disk for these files finding nothing. When I start it again, they all return again.
The easy way to erase everything is 1. stop slapd 2. rm -f /path/to/ldap/dir/* 3. start slapd
Is that exactly what you've done?
How do I get back to a brand new, empty, directory without re-installing?
