FW: Deleting the LDAP tree

  Here is the script I came up with to do just what you are talking about.

# Stops slapd
/etc/init.d/ldap stop
# Removes the database files, the location of which is defined in your 
# slapd.conf file, which is in /etc/openldap/
rm /data/duckpond.dol/*
# Starts slapd
/etc/init.d/ldap start
# Imports dump.ldif, which is a ldif file, into the new database to
# populate it
/usr/sbin/slapadd -l /data/openldaptemp/dump.ldif

Subject: Deleting the LDAP tree

If I want to delete the whole ldap tree to start out new, what do I need 
to do?  Can I just locate the database files and delete them?  If so, 
then where are they located.
