Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 Administration Guide

Modifying Attribute Values

You can use DSCC to perform this task. For information, see Directory Service Control Center Interface and the DSCC online help.

The following example shows how to change the value of an attribute by using the replace syntax in LDIF:

$ ldapmodify -h host1 -p 1389 -D cn=admin,cn=Administrators,cn=config -w -
Enter bind password:
dn: uid=bjensen,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modify
replace: sn
sn: Morris
replace: cn
cn: Barbara Morris
cn: Babs Morris

All current values of the specified attributes are removed, and all given values are added.

After changing an attribute value, you can use the ldapsearch command to verify the change.
