Q&A: Can I Remove Objects in Container "cn=temporary"?


Can I remove Objects in Container “cn=temporary”?


Yes, if they do not disappear you can safely remove them.


These objects are created to ensure that no duplicates are created. They are usually marked with a lifetime entry so they will get removed after a while.

The objects are not always deleted automatically. Verfiy the corresponding object exists in OpenLDAP (or it is a deleted object). Then you can safely delete these entries from cn=temporary.
