DESCRIPTION

ldapmodifyis a shell-accessible interface to theldap_modify(3)andldap_add(3)library calls.ldapaddis implemented as a hard link to the ldapmodify tool. When invoked asldapaddthe -a (add new entry) flag is turned on automatically.

ldapmodifyopens a connection to an LDAP server, binds, and modifies or adds entries.The entry information is read from standard input or from file throughthe use of the -f option. 

OPTIONS

-a
Add new entries. The default forldapmodifyis to modify existing entries. If invoked asldapadd,this flag is always set.
-c
Continuous operation mode. Errors are reported, butldapmodifywill continue with modifications. The default is to exit afterreporting an error.
-n
Show what would be done, but don't actually modify entries. Useful fordebugging in conjunction with -v.
-v
Use verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard output.
-k
Use Kerberos IV authentication instead of simple authentication. It isassumed that you already have a valid ticket granting ticket. You mustcompile with Kerberos support for this option to have any effect.
-K
Same as -k, but only does step 1 of the Kerberos IV bind. This is usefulwhen connecting to a slapd and there is no x500dsa.hostname principalregistered with your Kerberos Domain Controller(s).
-F
Force application of all changes regardless of the contents of inputlines that begin withreplica:(by default, replica: lines are compared against the LDAP server hostand port in use to decide if a replog record should actually be applied).
-M[M]
Enable manage DSA IT control.-MMmakes control critical.
-d debuglevel
Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel.ldapmodifymust be compiled with LDAP_DEBUG defined for this option to have any effect.
-f file
Read the entry modification information from file instead of fromstandard input.
-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.
-H ldapuri
Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s).
-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.
-O security-properties
Specify SASL security properties.
-I
Enable SASL Interactive mode. Always prompt. Default is to promptonly as needed.
-Q
Enable SASL Quiet mode. Never prompt.
-U authcid
Specify the authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the IDdepends on the actual SASL mechanism used.
-X authzid
Specify the requested authorization ID for SASL bind.authzidmust be one of the following formats:dn:<distinguished name>oru:<username>
-Y mech
Specify the SASL mechanism to be used for authentication. If it's notspecified, 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

The contents of file (or standard input if no -f flag is given onthe command line) should conform to the format defined inslapd.replog(5),with the exceptions noted below.

Lines that begin with "replica:" are matched against the LDAP server hostand port in use to decide if a particular replog record should be applied.Any other lines that precede the "dn:" line are ignored.The -F flag can be used to forceldapmodifyto apply all of the replog changes, regardless of the presence orabsence of any "replica:" lines.

If no "changetype:" line is present, the default is "add" if the -aflag is set (or if the program was invoked asldapmodify)and "modify" otherwise.

If changetype is "modify" and no "add:", "replace:", or "delete:" linesappear, the default is "replace" for and "add"ldapmodify(1)forldapadd(1).

Note that the above exceptions to theslapd.replog(5)format allowldif(5)entries to be used as input toldapmodifyorldapadd. 

EXAMPLES

Assuming that the file/tmp/entrymodsexists and has the contents:

    dn: cn=Modify Me, dc=example, dc=com    changetype: modify    replace: mail    mail: modmeAATTOpenLDAP.org    -    add: title    title: Grand Poobah    -    add: jpegPhoto    jpegPhoto:< file://tmp/modme.jpeg    -    delete: description    -

the command:

    ldapmodify -r -f /tmp/entrymods

will replace the contents of the "Modify Me" entry'smailattribute with the value "modmeAATTexample.com", add atitleof "Grand Poobah", and the contents of the file "/tmp/modme.jpeg"as ajpegPhoto,and completely remove thedescriptionattribute.

Assuming that the file/tmp/newentryexists and has the contents:

    dn: cn=Barbara Jensen, dc=example, dc=com    objectClass: person    cn: Barbara Jensen    cn: Babs Jensen    sn: Jensen    title: the world's most famous mythical manager    mail: bjensenAATTexample.com    uid: bjensenthe command:    ldapadd -f /tmp/entrymods

will add a new entry for Babs Jensen, using the values from thefile/tmp/newentry.

Assuming that the file/tmp/newentryexists and has the contents:

    dn: cn=Barbara Jensen, dc=example, dc=com    changetype: deletethe command:    ldapmodify -f /tmp/entrymods

will remove Babs Jensen's entry. 

DIAGNOSTICS

Exit status is zero if no errors occur. Errors result in a non-zeroexit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error.
