NAME - Directory Server perl script for cleaning up
       tombstone entries.

SYNOPSIS [-Z serverID] [-D rootdn] { -w password | -w -
       | -j filename } -s suffix -n backend [-m maxusn_to_delete] [-P
       protocol] [-h]

       Deletes the tombstone entries maintained by the instance if the USN
       Plug-in is enabled.

       A summary of options is included below:

       -Z Server Identifier
              The server ID of the Directory Server instance.  If there is
              only one instance on the system, this option can be skipped.

       -D Root DN
              The Directory Manager DN, or root DN.  If not specified, the
              script will search the server instance configuration for the

       -w password
              The rootdn password.

       -w -
              Prompt for the rootdn password.

       -j password filename
              The name of the file that contains the root DN password.

       -s suffix
              Gives the name of the suffix containing the entries to

       -n backend
              Gives the name of the database containing the entries to
              clean/delete.  Example, userRoot.

       -m maxusn_to_delete
              Sets the upper bound for entries to delete. All tombstone
              entries with an entryUSN value up to the specified maximum
              (inclusive) are deleted, but not past that USN value. If no
              maximum USN value is set, then all backend tombstone entries are

       -P protocol
              The connection protocol to connect to the Directory Server.
              Protocols are STARTTLS, LDAPS, LDAPI, and LDAP.  If this option
              is skipped, the most secure protocol that is available is used.
              For LDAPI, AUTOBIND is also available for the root user.

              Display usage

EXAMPLE -Z instance2 -D 'cn=directory manager' -w
       password -n userRoot -s 'ou=people,dc=example,dc=com' -P STARTTLS

              Note: security must be enabled to use protocol STARTTLS.  If
              STARTTLS is not available it will default to next
              strongest/available protocol automatically.

       Exit status is zero if no errors occur.  Errors result in a non-zero
       exit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error.
