Hello Quentin,

do you really mean manually delete using "rm" and/or "vim" in slapd.d???

I know I can do this, I did it first time. But this is not correct way. If you 
change the files, then slapd reports incorrect checksum.

I know I can edit this folder content using slapcat to LDIF, then edit, and 
then slapadd, but slapd must be offline.

Is there any other official way to remove parts of config online? Or is it 
slapcat-edit LDIF-slapadd only solution? At least, I can export config using 
slapcat, then edit, then create new config dir using slapadd and test config 
using slaptest and then doing stop slapd, rename config dirs and start slapd on 
one command line (/etc/init.d/slapd stop; mv cfg.d cfg.d.old ; mv cfg.d.new 
cfg.d ; /etc/init.d/slapd start).

Is this the only procedure how to remove config?
