Re: how do I delete an alias?

That should not be necessary. The spec says that aliases are only to be
dereferenced during Search operations. If you're getting this behavior,
either the server is broken or your client is trying to be too clever
and is doing a search of its own before issuing the delete request. In
any case, a single Delete request should only delete a single object;
deleting both the alias and the object it points to would always require
two separate Delete requests. In this case, I suspect a too-clever client.

alias, but the object the alias points to.
Read on 'Manage DSA IT control', i.e. man ldapdelete(1).
Nowhere in the original posting is there any mention of OpenLDAP
software revisions. Since OpenLDAP servers and clients do not exhibit
this erroneous behavior, it seems this discussion belongs elsewhere.
