SYNOPSIS
       ldappasswd [-A] [-a oldPasswd] [-t oldpasswdfile] [-D binddn] [-d debuglevel] [-H ldapuri]
       [-h ldaphost]  [-n]  [-p ldapport]  [-S]  [-s newPasswd]  [-T newpasswdfile]   [-v]   [-W]
       [-w passwd]  [-y passwdfile]  [-O security-properties]  [-I]  [-Q] [-U authcid] [-R realm]
       [-x] [-X authzid] [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]] [user]

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 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.

OPTIONS
       -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.

       -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.

       -d debuglevel
	      Set the LDAP debugging level to  debuglevel.   ldappasswd  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); 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.

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

       -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.

       -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 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
