    DESCRIPTION

           ldapdelete is a shell-accessible interface  to  the  ldap_delete_ext(3)
           library call.
    
           ldapdelete opens a connection to an LDAP server, binds, and deletes one
           or more entries.  If one or more DN  arguments  are  provided,  entries
           with those Distinguished Names are deleted.  Each DN should be provided
           using the LDAPv3 string representation as defined in RFC 4514.   If  no
           DN  arguments  are  provided, a list of DNs is read from standard input
           (or from file if the -f flag is used).
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -V[V]  Print version info.  If -VV is given, only the version  informa-
                  tion is printed.
    
           -d debuglevel
                  Set  the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel.  ldapdelete must be
                  compiled with LDAP_DEBUG defined for this  option  to  have  any
                  effect.
    
           -n     Show  what  would  be  done,  but don't actually delete entries.
                  Useful for debugging in conjunction with -v.
    
           -v     Use verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard out-
                  put.
    
           -c     Continuous   operation   mode.    Errors   are   reported,   but
                  ldapdelete will  continue  with  deletions.   The default is  to
                  exit after reporting an error.
    
           -f file
                  Read a series of DNs from file, one per line, performing an LDAP
                  delete for each.
    
           -r     Do a recursive delete.  If the DN specified isn't  a  leaf,  its
                  children,  and all their children are deleted down the tree.  No
                  verification is done, so if you add this switch, ldapdelete will
                  happily delete large portions of your tree.  Use with care.
    
           -z sizelimit
                  Use  sizelimit when searching for children DN to delete, to cir-
                  cumvent any server-side size limit.  Only useful in  conjunction
                  with -r.
    
           -y passwdfile
                  Use  complete  contents of passwdfile as the password for simple
                  authentication.
    
           -H ldapuri
                  Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s); only the  proto-
                  col/host/port  fields  are  allowed; a list of URI, separated by
                  whitespace or commas is expected.
    
           -h ldaphost
                  Specify an alternate host on which the ldap server  is  running.
                  Deprecated in favor of -H.
    
           -p ldapport
                  Specify  an  alternate TCP port where the ldap server is listen-
                  ing.  Deprecated in favor of -H.
    
           -P {2|3}
                  Specify the LDAP protocol version to use.
    
           -e [!]ext[=extparam]
    
           -E [!]ext[=extparam]
    
                  Specify general extensions with -e and  delete  extensions  with
                  -E.  ?!? indicates criticality.
    
                  General extensions:
                    [!]assert=<filter>    (an RFC 4515 Filter)
                    !authzid=<authzid>    ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
                    [!]bauthzid           (RFC 3829 authzid control)
                    [!]chaining[=<resolve>[/<cont>]]
                    [!]manageDSAit
                    [!]noop
                    ppolicy
                    [!]postread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
                    [!]preread[=<attrs>]  (a comma-separated attribute list)
                    [!]relax
                    sessiontracking
                    abandon,cancel,ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel,
                    or ignores response; if critical, doesn't wait for SIGINT.
                    not really controls)
    
                  Delete extensions:
                    (none)
    
           -o opt[=optparam]
    
                  Specify general options.
    
                  General options:
                    nettimeout=<timeout>  (in seconds, or "none" or "max")
    
                  identity depends on the actual SASL mechanism used.
    
           -R realm
                  Specify  the  realm of authentication ID for SASL bind. The form
                  of the realm depends on the actual SASL mechanism used.
    
           -X authzid
                  Specify the requested authorization ID for SASL  bind.   authzid
                  must be one of the following formats: dn:<distinguished name> or
                  u:<username>
    
           -Y mech
                  Specify the SASL mechanism to be  used  for  authentication.  If
                  it's  not  specified, the program will choose the best mechanism
                  the server knows.
    
           -Z[Z]  Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended operation. If
                  you  use  -ZZ, the command will require the operation to be suc-
                  cessful.
    
    
    

    EXAMPLE

           The following command:
    
               ldapdelete "cn=Delete Me,dc=example,dc=com"
    
           will  attempt  to  delete  the  entry  named   "cn=Delete   Me,dc=exam-
           ple,dc=com".   Of  course  it  would  probably  be  necessary to supply
           authentication credentials.
    
    
    

    DIAGNOSTICS

           Exit status is 0 if no errors occur.  Errors result in a non-zero  exit
           status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error.
