  1. Challenge

    Add the jrupert user using the ldif file provided.

    Since the file is in root's home directory, we should elevate to root. Once that's done we can run the ldapadd command required to add the user. To verify, we can run an ldapsearch command to see that the user was added.

  2. Challenge

    Delete the bbanner user from LDAP

    First, we should verify we have the correct DN for the user. Run an ldapsearch for the bbanner UID to get the DN. Then run ldapmodify to delete the user.
