Can I do this with ldapdelete? I always used that tool only to delete
Yes. But you have to provide a file with a list of the DNs of the
entries to be deleted.
$ ldapdelete -h
usage: ldapdelete [options] [dn]...
dn: list of DNs to delete. If not given, it will be readed from stdin
or from the file specified with "-f file".
Or you could try to simply change the objectclass and all required
attribute values in one operation using ldapmodify with the "-e relax"
control. It should allow you to replace the structural objectclass,
which otherwise is forbidden.
Hmm, my ldapmodify don't know this switch.
How can I delete all entrys under an OU?
If this works I delete all entrys and add them with the right ObjectClass.
