if you want to delete
the entry cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com, it has to be the last part of your ldapdelete command.
The argument for –D
is the account you use to bind against the LDAP server. So your command should look like this:
ldapdelete -D "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com"
-w secret -x "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com"
Btw. Did you set a
password for the Manager account already?

Subject: Re: ldapdelete "ldap_bind: Invalid DN syntax (34)"
Yes, I looked at the manpage, but I still didn't get it. Maybe I'm too stupid.
I wanna delete the DN, i.e., "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com", I added into the directory.
So, according to the example in the manpage, I should just do
"-x -w secret" is just for simple authentication. So, you mean I should do sth like
ldapdelete -D "dc=example,dc=com" "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com"
I tried, but still get ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)
Thanks a lot!

Did you look at the manpage for ldapdelete? E.g.:
> ldapdelete "cn=Manager,dc=example,dc=com" -x -w secret
> ldap_bind: Invalid DN syntax (34)
> additional info: invalid DN
The DN you with to bind with needs to be specified with '-D', just
as your correct invocation does.
