non-leaf tree deletion problem (ITS#3088)

Full_Name: Martin Evans
Version: 2.2.8
OS: Solaris 8
Submission from: (NULL) (

I seem to have some corruption to my database that is causing problems with
deletion. All operations on the database were made via ldap. I have a childless

bash-2.05b$ ldapsearch -H "ldap://<ldaphost>" -D "cn=manager,<baseDN>" -ZZ -x -W
-b "ou=people,ou=unix,<baseDN>" '(objectclass=*)'
Enter LDAP Password:
# extended LDIF
# LDAPv3
# base <ou=people,ou=unix,<baseDN>> with scope sub
# filter: (objectclass=*)
# requesting: ALL
# people, unix, baseDN
dn: ou=people,ou=unix,<baseDN>
ou: people
objectClass: top
objectClass: organizationalUnit
# search result
search: 3
result: 0 Success
# numResponses: 2
# numEntries: 1

Which I cannot delete:

bash-2.05b$ ldapdelete -H "ldap://<ldaphost>" -D "cn=manager,<baseDN>" -ZZ -x -W
"ou=people,ou=unix,<baseDN>" Enter LDAP Password:
Delete Result: Operation not allowed on non-leaf (66)
Additional info: subtree delete not supported

I'm not having much luck with 2.2.8 :-(

Kind regards,
