       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 such.

       -V[V]  Print version info.  If -VV is given, only the version information 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 effect.

       -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 protocol/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  listening.   Deprecated  in
	      favor of -H.

       -e [!]ext[=extparam]

       -E [!]ext[=extparam]

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

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

	      Passwd Modify extensions:

       -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 successful

       ldap_sasl_bind(3), ldap_extended_operation(3), ldap_start_tls_s(3)
