ldapdelete "ldap_bind: Invalid DN syntax (34)"


Sorry for the newbie question, but I really cannot figure out the problem.

I just follow the "A Quick-Start Guide", what I did is build a example.ldif as follows:

dn: dc=example,dc=com
objectclass: dcObject
objectclass: organization
o: Example Company
dc: example

dn: cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com
objectclass: organizationalRole
cn: Manager

Then, using ldapadd to insert these entries:

ldapadd -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com" -f example.ldif -w secret
adding new entry "dc=example,dc=com"

adding new entry "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com"

Everything is fine.


Then, I want to use ldapdelete to delete the entries I added just now. I tried

ldapdelete "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com" -x -w secret
ldap_bind: Invalid DN syntax (34)
    additional info: invalid DN

and, also, I tried

ldapdelete -D "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com" -x -w secret

but this time the client just hangs. I read the manuals and search on google but still does not have idea.

my ldap.conf is as follows

database bdb
suffix "dc=example,dc=com"
rootdn "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com"
rootpw secret
directory /usr/local/var/openldap-data

Could anyone take a look and tell me why? Thanks a lot!
