To delete an ACI using the command line:
  1. Display the ACIs set on the entry. See Section 18.7.1, “Displaying ACIs Using the Command Line”.
  2. Delete the ACI:
    • If only one aci attribute is set on the entry or you want to remove all ACIs from the entry:
      # ldapmodify -D "cn=Directory Manager" -W -p 389 -h server.example.com -x
      dn: ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
      changetype: delete
      delete: aci
    • If multiple ACIs exist on the entry and you want to delete a specific ACI, specify the exact ACI:
      # ldapmodify -D "cn=Directory Manager" -W -p 389 -h server.example.com -x
      dn: ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
      changetype: modify
      delete: aci
      aci: (targetattr="userPassword") (version 3.0; acl "Allow users
       updating their password"; allow (write) userdn= "ldap:///self";)
