       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.

       -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

       -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

       -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

       -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)
		[!]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)

       -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

       -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‐
