thanks much. If I understand correctly, what I need to do is, stop
all ldap daemons and delete the existing db files and hack the
slapd.conf file with the entries and DN I want and start the ldap
daemons and I am in business :)
is this is correct? I will try this on Monday and get back to you.
Yup, that is basically it.
