ldapexop - issue LDAP extended operations SYNOPSIS
ldapexop [-d level] [-D binddn] [-e [!]ext[=extparam]] [-f file] [-h host] [-H URI] [-I] [-n] [-N] [-O security-properties] [-o opt[=opt- param]] [-p port] [-Q] [-R realm] [-U authcid] [-v] [-V] [-w passwd] [-W] [-x] [-X authzid] [-y file] [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]] {oid | oid:data | oid::b64data | whoami | cancel cancel-id | refresh DN [ttl]} DESCRIPTION
ldapexop issues the LDAP extended operation specified by oid or one of the special keywords whoami, cancel, or refresh. Additional data for the extended operation can be passed to the server using data or base-64 encoded as b64data in the case of oid, or using the additional parameters in the case of the specially named extended operations above. Please note that ldapexop behaves differently for the same extended operation when it was given as an OID or as a specialliy named opera- tion: Calling ldapexop with the OID of the whoami (RFC 4532) extended operation ldapexop [<options>] yields # extended operation response data:: <base64 encoded response data> while calling it with the keyword whoami ldapexop [<options>] whoami results in dn:<client's identity> OPTIONS
-d level Set the LDAP debugging level to level. -D binddn Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP directory. -e [!]ext[=extparam] Specify general extensions. '!' indicates criticality. [!]assert=<filter> (RFC 4528; a RFC 4515 Filter string) [!]authzid=<authzid> (RFC 4370; "dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>") [!]chaining[=<resolveBehavior>[/<continuationBehavior>]] one of "chainingPreferred", "chainingRequired", "referralsPreferred", "referralsRequired" [!]manageDSAit (RFC 3296) [!]noop ppolicy [!]postread[=<attrs>] (RFC 4527; comma-separated attr list) [!]preread[=<attrs>] (RFC 4527; comma-separated attr list) [!]relax abandon, cancel, ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel, or ignores response; if critical, doesn't wait for SIGINT. not really controls) -f file Read operations from file. -h host Specify the host on which the ldap server is running. Deprecated in favor of -H. -H URI Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s); only the protocol/host/port fields are allowed; a list of URI, separated by white- space or commas is expected. -I Enable SASL Interactive mode. Always prompt. Default is to prompt only as needed. -n Show what would be done but don't actually do it. Useful for debugging in conjunction with -v. -N Do not use reverse DNS to canonicalize SASL host name. -O security-properties Specify SASL security properties. -o opt[=optparam] Specify general options: nettimeout=<timeout> (in seconds, or "none" or "max") -p port Specify the TCP port where the ldap server is listening. Deprecated in favor of -H. -Q Enable SASL Quiet mode. Never prompt. -R realm Specify the realm of authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the realm depends on the actual SASL mechanism used. -U authcid Specify the authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the ID depends on the actual SASL mechanism used. -v Run in verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard output. -V Print version info and usage message. If-VV is given, only the version information is printed. -w passwd Use passwd as the password for simple authentication. -W Prompt for simple authentication. This is used instead of specifying the password on the command line. -x Use simple authentication instead of SASL. -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 file Use complete contents of file as the password for simple authentication. -Y mech Specify the SASL mechanism to be used for authentication. Without this option, the program will choose the best mechanism the server knows. -Z[Z] Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended operation. Giving it twice (-ZZ) will require the operation to be successful. DIAGNOSTICS
Exit status is zero if no errors occur. Errors result in a non-zero exit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error. SEE ALSO
