2. You can not update a single value of an attribute in LDAP the way
you would in an RDBMS. The where clause is used to find the entry to
apply the modify operation on. What you would need to do is delete
and then add the value :
UPDATE ENTRY cn=Me,dc=domain,dc=com DO DELETE SET attrib='oldval' DO
ADD SET attrib='newval' WHERE attrib='oldval'
