You can generate a file of DNs that you would like to delete from the Directory Server.
The following command searches for all entries in the ou=Accounting branch and returns the DNs of the subentries.
$ bin/dump-dns -D "cn=admin,dc=example,dc=com" -w password --baseDN \ "ou=Accounting,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com" --outputFile /usr/local/entry_dns.txt
Run the ldapdelete command with the file to delete the
entries. The command uses the --continueError option, which
will continue deleting through the whole list even if an error is encountered
for a DN entry.
$ bin/ldapdelete --filename /usr/local/entry_dns.txt --continueError
