I have to become root, run ldapvi, search for username.

I've done this, and confirm your username is correct.

Beyond that I'm not willing to go without some others in the sunjammer
admin or adm group giving advice or consensus; because I don't have
the LDAP RootDN password and so I'd have to change it [1] then convey
it to the others securely.

Ibiam, are you changing your password because of expiry?  Would you
like to try changing it in the shell?  I don't know if it works.
