       ldappasswd is a tool to set the password of an LDAP  user.
       ldappasswd  uses  the  LDAPv3  Password  Modify (RFC 3062)
       extended operation.

       ldappasswd sets the password of associated with  the  user
       [or an optionally specified user].  If the new password is
       not specified on the command line  and  the  user  doesn't
       enable  prompting,  the server will be asked to generate a
       password for the user.

       ldappasswd is  neither  designed  nor  intended  to  be  a
       replacement  for  passwd(1) and should not be installed as


       -A     Prompt for old password.  This is used  instead  of
              specifying the password on the command line.

       -a oldPasswd
              Set the old password to oldPasswd.

       -t oldPasswdFile
              Set  the old password to the contents of oldPasswd­

       -x     Use simple authentication instead of SASL.

       -D binddn
              Use the Distinguished Name binddn to  bind  to  the
              LDAP directory.

       -d debuglevel
              Set  the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel.  ldap­
              passwd must be compiled with LDAP_DEBUG defined for
              this option to have any effect.

       -H ldapuri
              Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s).

       -h ldaphost
              Specify  an alternate host on which the ldap server
              is running.  Deprecated in favor of -H.

              Set  the new password to the contents of newPasswd­

       -v     Increase the verbosity of output.  Can be specified
              multiple times.

       -W     Prompt  for bind password.  This is used instead of
              specifying the password on the command line.

       -w passwd
              Use passwd as the password to bind with.

       -y passwdfile
              Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password
              for simple authentication.

       -O security-properties
              Specify SASL security properties.

       -I     Enable   SASL  Interactive  mode.   Always  prompt.
              Default is to prompt only as needed.

       -Q     Enable SASL Quiet mode.  Never prompt.

       -U authcid
              Specify the authentication ID for  SASL  bind.  The
              form of the ID depends on the actual SASL mechanism

       -R realm
              Specify the realm of  authentication  ID  for  SASL
              bind.  The  form of the realm depends on the actual
              SASL mechanism used.

       -X authzid
              Specify the proxy authorization ID for  SASL  bind.
              authzid  must  be  one  of  the  following formats:
              dn:<distinguishedname> or u:<username>.

       -Y mech
              Specify the SASL mechanism to be used for authenti­
              cation.  If  it's  not  specified, the program will
              choose the best mechanism the server knows.

       -Z[Z]  Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security)  extended
              operation. If you use -ZZ, the command will require
              the operation to be successful
