       [-t oldpasswdfile]   [-S]   [-s newPasswd]   [-T	newpasswdfile]	  [-x]

DESCRIPTION
       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 option-
       ally specified user].  If the new password is not specified on the com-
       mand  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	such.

OPTIONS
       -V[V]  Print  version info.  If -VV is given, only the version informa-
	      tion is printed.

       -d debuglevel
	      Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel.  ldappasswd must  be
	      compiled with LDAP_DEBUG defined for this	option to have any ef-
	      fect.

       -n     Do not set password. (Can	be useful  when	 used  in  conjunction
	      with -v or -d)

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

       -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 oldPasswdFile.

       -S     Prompt for new password.	This is	used instead of	specifying the
	      password on the command line.

       -s newPasswd
	      Set the new password to newPasswd.

       -T newPasswdFile
	      Set the new password to the contents of newPasswdFile.

       -x     Use simple authentication	instead	of SASL.

       -D binddn
	      Use the Distinguished Name binddn	to bind	to the LDAP directory.
	      For SASL binds, the server is expected to	ignore this value.

       -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.

       -H ldapuri
	      Specify  URI(s) referring	to the ldap server(s); only the	proto-
	      col/host/port fields are allowed;	a list of  URI,	 separated  by
	      whitespace or commas is expected.

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

       -p ldapport
	      Specify an alternate TCP port where the ldap server  is  listen-
	      ing.  Deprecated in favor	of -H.

       -e [!]ext[=extparam]

       -E [!]ext[=extparam]

	      Specify  general extensions with -e and passwd modify extensions
	      with -E.	'!' indicates criticality.

	      General extensions:
		[!]assert=<filter>    (an RFC 4515 Filter)
		!authzid=<authzid>    ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
		[!]bauthzid	      (RFC 3829	authzid	control)
		[!]chaining[=<resolve>[/<cont>]]
		[!]manageDSAit
		[!]noop
		ppolicy
		[!]postread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
		[!]preread[=<attrs>]  (a comma-separated attribute list)
		[!]relax
		sessiontracking
		abandon,cancel,ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel,
		or ignores response; if	critical, doesn't wait for SIGINT.
		not really controls)

	      Passwd Modify extensions:
		(none)

       -o opt[=optparam]]

	      Specify general options.

	      General options:
		nettimeout=<timeout>  (in seconds, or "none" or	"max")
		ldif-wrap=<width>     (in columns, or "no" for no wrapping)

       -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.

       -N     Do not use reverse DNS to	canonicalize SASL host name.

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

       -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 formats: dn:_distinguished name_ or
	      u:_username_.

       -Y mech
	      Specify  the  SASL  mechanism  to	be used	for authentication. 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  suc-
	      cessful
