Re: forgotten rootdn psw

Hello Steve,

I guess you could issue another LDAP master password with:

$ slappasswd

And substitute that hash in "rootpw" on /etc/openldap/slapd.conf and restart your LDAP server.

I think you are good to go that way.

ok...So i'm an ID10T!!  LOL.  But seriously, I setup an OpenLdap server and migrated /etc/passwd to it, and all is well: however, I did that months ago, and you guessed it, somehow I'm having a "senior" moment, and can't remember the psw for the rootdn, so that I can add another user to the Ldap server. I'm sure there is probably a way to decode the "hashed/encrypted" password.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I really don't want to have to delete everything and start again, but if that's what I must do, then so be it.
Thanks in advance,
