       ldapexop - issue LDAP extended operations


       ldapexop  [-V[V]]  [-d debuglevel]  [-n]  [-v] [-f file] [-x] [-D binddn] [-W] [-w passwd]
       [-y passwdfile]    [-H URI]     [-h ldaphost]     [-p ldapport]     [-e [!]ext[=extparam]]
       [-o opt[=optparam]]   [-O security-properties]  [-I]  [-Q]  [-N]  [-U authcid]  [-R realm]
       [-X authzid] [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]] {oid | oid:data | oid::b64data | whoami |  cancel cancel-id
       | refresh DN [ttl]}


       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 operation:

       Calling ldapexop with the OID of the whoami (RFC 4532) extended operation

         ldapexop [<options>]


         # extended operation response
         data:: <base64 encoded response data>

       while calling it with the keyword whoami

         ldapexop [<options>] whoami

       results in

         dn:<client's identity>


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

       -d debuglevel
              Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel.

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

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

       -f file
              Read operations from file.

       -x     Use simple authentication instead of SASL.

       -D binddn
              Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP directory.

       -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 URI 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 the host on which the ldap server is running.  Deprecated in favor of -H.

       -p ldapport
              Specify the TCP port where the ldap server is listening.  Deprecated  in  favor  of

       -e [!]ext[=extparam]
              Specify general extensions.  ´!´ indicates criticality.
                [!]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)

       -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.  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.


       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.
