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.
-V[V] Print version info. If -VV is given, only the version informa- tion 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't actually change entries. Useful for debugging in conjunction with -v. -v Use verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard out- put. -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 sup- ported in LDAPv2. -c Continuous operation mode. Errors are reported, but ldapmod- rdn 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 spec- ifying 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 proto- col/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 listen- ing. 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. ! 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'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'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 suc- cessful.
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.
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.
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.
