useradd for ldap
Obol is a command line utility to add, delete and modify users and groups in an LDAP server.
Perhaps the most common use of LDAP is as a centralised store for usernames and passwords. The protocol for managing an LDAP server is somewhat verbose. It is cumbersome to create an LDIF file to modify a user attribute.
For UNIX passwords, user and group management can be done using simple command line tools like useradd and groupadd. Obol was created to provide a similar interface, but to manage users and groups inside an LDAP server.
