Net::LDAP::Extra::AD(3User Contributed Perl DocumentatiNet::LDAP::Extra::AD(3)

NAME
       Net::LDAP::Extra::AD -- AD convenience methods

SYNOPSIS
	 use Net::LDAP::Extra qw(AD);

	 $ldap = Net::LDAP->new( ... );

	 ...

	 if ($ldap->is_AD || $ldap->is_ADAM) {
	   $ldap->change_ADpassword($dn, $old_password,	$new_password);
	 }

DESCRIPTION
       Net::LDAP::Extra::AD tries to spare users the necessity to reinvent the
       wheel again and again in	order to correctly encode password strings so
       that they can be	used in	AD password change operations.

       To do so, it provides the following methods:

METHODS
       is_AD ( )
	   Tell	if the LDAP server queried is an Active	Directory Domain
	   Controller.

	   As the check	is done	by querying the	root DSE of the	directory, it
	   works without being bound to	the directory.

       is_ADAM ( )
	   Tell	if the LDAP server queried is running AD LDS (Active Directory
	   Lightweight Directory Services), previously known as	ADAM (Active
	   Directoy Application	Mode).

	   As the check	is done	by querying the	root DSE of the	directory, it
	   works without being bound to	the directory.

       change_ADpassword ( DN, OLD_PASSWORD, NEW_PASSWORD )
	   Change the password of the account given by DN from its old value
	   OLD_PASSWORD	to the new value NEW_PASSWORD.

	   This	method requires	encrypted connections.

       reset_ADpassword	( DN, NEW_PASSWORD, OPTIONS )
	   Reset the password of the account given by DN to the	value given in
	   NEW_PASSWORD.  OPTIONS is a list of key/value pairs.	The following
	   keys	are recognized:

	   force_change
	       If TRUE,	the affected user is required to change	the password
	       at next login.

	   For this method to work, the	caller needs to	be bound to AD with
	   sufficient permissions, and the connection needs to be encrypted.
