Thanks for your reply. So the saslpasswd tool and Cyrus Sasl API wouldn't work for authentication on LDAP. Anyway, the worst case I think I can still using LDAP C API.

I use perl with the Net::LDAP API to update OpenLDAP.
There are other mechanisms available as well, depending on the LDAP
server. MS ActiveDirectory, or Novell's eDirectory, will work as well,
and will give you GUI tools for adding/updating users. But that's only
useful if you already have one of those environments.
