The Toolserver uses LDAP for local authentication.

To use certain services (such as subversion and phpMyAdmin) you will need to set your LDAP password. To do this, run the following command:

$ setpass

If your password is not strong enough, you might receive an error message from setpass. The password must be at least 8 characters long and contain at least two of the following character types: punctuation, numeric and alphabetical. If the password you choose is not strong enough, the error message will indicate the problem. Choose a new password, and run setpass again.

If you forget your LDAP password, use the following command to reset it:

$ resetpass

To change your password, run:

$ passwd

Note: Your LDAP password cannot be used to log in via SSH. You must use SSH keys for that.

Your account email address is also stored in LDAP. To view or change it, run:

$ setmail

Older accounts may not have an LDAP email address set. In this case, setmail will let you set the address.

If you don't have an LDAP e-mail address and don't know your password, you'll need to create a JIRA issue in the "Toolserver" project.

For more information, see mail.
