LDAP delete - seems not working

Hi all,

I am very new to ldap and am facing the below difficulty.

When I try to add something to ldap, I get this:

server# /opt/iexpress/openldap/bin/ldapmodify -f almondabc.ldif -h -xv -D cn=Manager,dc=almondabc,dc=com -w secret
ldap_initialize( ldap:// )
add o:
almondabc Software
add dc:
add objectclass:
adding new entry "dc=almondabc,dc=com"
ldap_add: Already exists (68)


Then I try to delete the entry, by the following:

/opt/iexpress/openldap/bin/ldapdelete -r -v -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=almondabc,dc=com" -h -w secret "dc=almondabc,dc=com"

But then also I get the same result on executing the same ldapmodify command

My LDIF file is:

LDIF File:

dn: dc=almondabc,dc=com
changetype: add
o: almondabc Software
dc: almondabc
objectclass: dcObject
objectclass: top
objectclass: organization

dn: cn=Manager,dc=almondabc,dc=com
objectClass: top
objectclass: organizationalRole
cn: Manager

dn: ou=Development,dc=almondabc,dc=com
ou: Development
objectClass: top
objectclass: organizationalUnit

dn: cn=johny+uid=s001,dc=almondabc,dc=com
cn: johny
uid: s001
ou: Development
objectClass: top
objectClass: persona
objectClass: organizationalPersona
objectClass: intertOrgPersona
facsimileTelephoneNumber: +1 222 589 7894
sn: johny
userPassword: johny

Any help will be appreciated.
