I'm used to being able to change user's passwords as root
"passwd" command on my main server (this was with NIS and the master

# passwd orion
Changing password for user orion.
Enter login(LDAP) password:
and I must enter the password for the user "orion". This gets tricky
when the user has forgotten their password.
Is there a way to avoid this first check and allow root to force a
change of the password?
I don't think so. "root" usually does not
exist in LDAP, only in
/etc/passwd, so "root" is not really an LDAP user. I suppose you could
use ldappasswd and bind as "cn=directory manager" instead if you know
the user is an LDAP user.
