DESCRIPTION

       ldapmodrdn is a shell-accessible interface to the ldap_rename(3) library call.

       ldapmodrdn opens a connection to an LDAP server, binds, and modifies the RDN  of  entries.
       The  entry  information  is  read from standard input, from file through the use of the -f
       option, or from the command-line pair dn and rdn.

OPTIONS

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

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

       -n     Show  what  would be done, but don't actually change entries.  Useful for debugging
              in conjunction with -v.

       -v     Use verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard output.

       -r     Remove old RDN values from the entry.  Default is to keep old values.

       -s newsup
              Specify a new superior entry. (I.e., move the target entry and make it a  child  of
              the new superior.)  This option is not supported in LDAPv2.

       -c     Continuous  operation  mode.  Errors  are  reported,  but ldapmodrdn will  continue
              with  modifications.   The default is to exit after reporting an error.

       -f file
              Read the entry modification information from file instead of from standard input or
              the command-line.

       -M[M]  Enable manage DSA IT control.  -MM makes control critical.

       -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 simple authentication.  This is used instead of specifying the  password
              on the command line.

       -w passwd
              Use passwd as the password for simple authentication.

       -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.

       -P {2|3}
              Specify the LDAP protocol version to use.

       -e [!]ext[=extparam]

       -E [!]ext[=extparam]

              Specify general extensions with -e and modrdn 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)

              Modrdn 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 successful.

INPUT FORMAT

       If the command-line arguments dn and rdn are given, rdn will replace the RDN of the  entry
       specified by the DN, dn.

       Otherwise,  the contents of file (or standard input if no -f flag is given) should consist
       of one or more entries.

           Distinguished Name (DN)
           Relative Distinguished Name (RDN)

       One or more blank lines may be used to separate each DN/RDN pair.

EXAMPLE

       Assuming that the file /tmp/entrymods exists and has the contents:

           cn=Modify Me,dc=example,dc=com
           cn=The New Me

       the command:

           ldapmodrdn -r -f /tmp/entrymods

       will change the RDN of the "Modify Me" entry from "Modify Me" to "The New Me" and the  old
       cn, "Modify Me" will be removed.

DIAGNOSTICS

       Exit  status  is  0  if  no  errors  occur.  Errors result in a non-zero exit status and a
       diagnostic message being written to standard error.
