_ldappasswd - modifies a POSIX user account’s password in LDAP.
_ldappasswd <username|uid> [encodedpassword]
<username | uid>
The name or uid of the user whose password has to be modified.
If specified this way, the password will be copied verbatim into
the LDAP directory. If not specified, you will be prompted for a
password that will be changed using the ldappasswd(1) command.

When used interactively, passwords generated with this command are
propagated with the ldappasswd(1) command. Thus, the resulting format
depends on the ’password-hash’ option of your server’s slapd.conf(5)
You can always force an encoded password (using the hash format of your
choice) by specifying it on the command line.
No bug known.
