       ldapwhoami [-n] [-v] [-z] [-d debuglevel] [-D binddn] [-W]
       [-w passwd]  [-y passwdfile]  [-H ldapuri]   [-h ldaphost]
       [-p ldapport] [-O security-properties] [-I] [-Q] [-U auth­
       cid] [-R realm] [-x] [-X authzid] [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]]


       ldapwhoami implements the LDAP "Who Am I?" extended opera­

       ldapwhoami  opens  a  connection to an LDAP server, binds,
       and performs a whoami operation.


       -n     Show what would be done, but don't actually perform
              the whoami operation.  Useful for debugging in con­
              junction with -v.

       -v     Run in verbose mode, with many diagnostics  written
              to standard output.

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

       -x     Use simple authentication instead of SASL.

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

       -W     Prompt for simple  authentication.   This  is  used
              instead  of  specifying the password on the command

       -w passwd
              Use passwd as the password for  simple  authentica­

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

       -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.

       -p ldapport
              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  requested  authorization  ID for SASL
              bind.  authzid must be one of  the  following  for­
              mats: dn:<distinguished name> 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.
