Description:

Can 'ldappasswd' be used to replace a password?

Example:

ldappasswd -D cn=nnnnnnn -W -h xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -p 389 -S tssacid=aaaaaaa

where:

nnnnnnn - is any administrator, it's the bind DN.
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - is the tcpip address
aaaaaaa - is the acid you want to change his password

Solution:

The LDAP command 'ldappasswd' is not supported at this time.

Other options:

  1. Use the 'ldapmodify' command to change the password.

  2. If you know the old password, use 'ldapbind' command by specifying the old/new password on the command.
Please, refer to CA LDAP Server z/OS Administrator Guide for more details and syntax about the 'ldapmodify' and 'ldapbind' commands.
