NAME

       ldapsetpasswd - modifies a POSIX user account's password in LDAP.

SYNOPSIS

       ldapsetpasswd <username|uid> [encodedpassword]

OPTIONS

       <username | uid>
              The name or uid of the user whose password has to be modified.

       [encoded password]
              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.

SEE ALSO

       ldapfinger(1), ldapid(1), ldapgid(1), ldapscripts(5).

LIMITATIONS

       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)
       file.

       You can always force an encoded password (using the hash format of your
       choice) by specifying it on the command line.
