DESCRIPTION
       ldapdelete is a shell-accessible interface to the ldap_delete(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  2253.  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
       -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 output.

       -k     Use  Kerberos  IV  authentication  instead of simple authentication.  It is assumed
	      that you already have a valid ticket granting ticket. This option only  has  effect
	      if ldapdelete is compiled with Kerberos support.

       -K     Same as -k, but only does step 1 of the Kerberos IV bind.  This is useful when con-
	      necting to a slapd and there is no x500dsa.hostname principal registered with  your
	      Kerberos Domain Controller(s).

       -c     Continuous  operation  mode.  Errors  are  reported,  but ldapdelete will  continue
	      with  deletions.	 The default is to exit after reporting an error.

       -M[M]  Enable manage DSA IT control.  -MM makes control critical.

       -d debuglevel
	      Set the LDAP debugging level to  debuglevel.   ldapdelete  must  be  compiled  with
	      LDAP_DEBUG defined for this option to have any effect.

       -f file
	      Read a series of DNs from file, one per line, performing an LDAP delete for each.

       -x     Use simple authentication instead of SASL.

       -D binddn
	      Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP directory.

       -W     Prompt  for simple authentication.  This is used instead of specifying the password
	      on the command line.

       -w passwd
	      Use passwd as the password for simple authentication.

       -y passwdfile
	      Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password for simple authentication.

       -H ldapuri
	      Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s).

       -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 listening.  Deprecated in
	      favor of -H.

       -P 2|3 Specify the LDAP protocol version to use.

       -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.

       -O security-properties
	      Specify SASL security properties.

       -I     Enable SASL Interactive mode.  Always prompt.  Default is to prompt only as needed.

       -Q     Enable SASL Quiet mode.  Never prompt.

       -U authcid
	      Specify  the  authentication  ID for SASL bind. The form of the 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 proxy authorization ID for SASL bind.  authzid must be one of the fol-
	      lowing 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 successful.

EXAMPLE
       The following command:

	   ldapdelete "cn=Delete Me,dc=example,dc=com"

       will attempt to delete the entry named "cn=Delete  Me,dc=example,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 diag-
       nostic message being written to standard error.
