This shows you how to get the DN of the admin user:

Here is an example of how to set the password expiration so that it does 
not expire:
ldapmodify -x -D "cn=directory manager" -W <<EOF
dn: <the dn of the admin user>
changetype: modify
replace: passwordExpirationTime
passwordExpirationTime: 20380119031407Z
