The directory server provides a full set of LDAPv2- and LDAPv3-compliant client tools to manage directory entries. You can add, update, or remove entries by using the ldapmodify and ldapdelete utilities. The LDAP command-line utilities require LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF)-formatted input, entered through the command line or read from a file.
You can also modify directory data by using the control panel. For more information, see Managing Directory Data With the Control Panel.
Before you make modifications to directory data, make sure that you understand the following concepts:
The privilege and access control mechanisms.
For information about setting privileges, Controlling Access To Data.
The structure of your directory server.
