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_zsingle_quotesz_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. _zsingle_quotesz_!_zsingle_quotesz_ 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_zsingle_quotesz_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_zsingle_quotesz_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.
