ldapexop issues the LDAP extended operation specified by
oid or one of the
special keywords whoami,
Additional data for the extended operation can be passed
to the server using
data or base-64 encoded as
b64data in the case
oid, or using the
additional parameters in the case of the specially named
extended operations above.
Please note that ldapexop behaves differently for the same extended operation when it was given as an OID or as a specialliy named operation:
Calling ldapexop with the OID of the

Print version info. If
−VV is given, only the version
information is printed.
Set the LDAP debugging level to

Useful for debugging in conjunction with

Use complete contents of

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.

Specify SASL security properties.
Enable SASL Interactive mode. Always prompt. Default is to prompt only as needed.
Enable SASL Quiet mode. Never prompt.
Do not use reverse DNS to canonicalize SASL host name.
Specify the authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the ID depends on the actual SASL mechanism used.
Specify the realm of authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the realm depends on the actual SASL mechanism used.
Specify the requested authorization ID for SASL

Specify the SASL mechanism to be used for authentication. Without this option, the program will choose the best mechanism the server knows.
Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended
operation. Giving it twice (
−ZZ) will require the operation
to be successful.
Exit status is zero if no errors occur. Errors result in a non-zero exit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error.
