The administrator entry is just like any other entry and the userPassword
field is like any other attribute.   You can use these LDAP client tools to
update this attribute just the same way even on your SUN machine since this
goes over the wire.

Hence this mechanism also works for ApacheDS however note that you'll need
either the SUN or the OpenLDAP client since we don't have command line
