Change user password in LDAP Directory

Checks the users exists first, then changes the password If user doesn’t exist, returns the error etc.

If no oldpass arg is passed, binds as rootdn and sets a password

Default is set to change/add a Samba and Unix password. If you don’t want this, pass in unix => ’0’, or samba => ’0’, etc.
