I use a program called LDAP Administration Tool (available in debian apt
repo, name = 'lat') which is a gtk app that allows LDAP administration.
Simply connect as 'directory manager' and you can change passwords
through the interface without needing to know the previous password.

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
shadow file kept on the server). Now with FDS, I get:
# 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?
