NAME
       ldapmodrdn - LDAP rename entry tool

SYNOPSIS
       ldapmodrdn  [-r]	 [-n]  [-v]  [-k]  [-K]	 [-c]  [-M[M]] [-d debuglevel]
       [-D binddn] [-W] [-w passwd] [-y passwdfile] [-H ldapuri] [-h ldaphost]
       [-p ldapport]  [-P 2|3] [-O security-properties] [-I] [-Q] [-U authcid]
       [-R realm] [-x] [-X authzid] [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]] [-f file] [dn rdn]

DESCRIPTION
       ldapmodrdn is  a	 shell-accessible  interface  to  the  ldap_modrdn2(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
       -r     Remove old RDN values from the entry.  Default is	 to  keep  old
	      values.

       -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.

       -k     Use Kerberos IV authentication instead of simple authentication.
	      It is assumed that you already  have  a  valid  ticket  granting
	      ticket.	ldapmodrdn  must be compiled with Kerberos support for
	      this option to have effect.

       -K     Same as -k, but only does step 1 of the Kerberos IV bind.	  This
	      is   useful   when  connecting  to  a  slapd  and	 there	is  no
	      x500dsa.hostname principal registered with your Kerberos	Domain
	      Controller(s).

       -c     Continuous operation mode.  Errors  are  reported,  but ldapmod‐
	      ify will	continue  with	modifications.	  The  default	is  to
	      exit after reporting an error.

       -M[M]  Enable manage DSA IT control.  -MM makes control critical.

       -d debuglevel
	      Set  the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel.  ldapmodrdn must be
	      compiled with LDAP_DEBUG defined for this	 option	 to  have  any
	      effect.

       -f file
	      Read  the	 entry	modification  information from file instead of
	      from standard input or the command-line.

       -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 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).

       -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.

       -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.

       -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 proxy 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.

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:

	   ldapmodify -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.
