Comment 1 Marc Muehlfeld 2018-06-26 08:13:41 UTC
I fixed the incorrect options in both sections and republished the guide on the Customer Portal:

19.6.1. Resetting the Directory Manager Password Changing the Directory Manager Password Using the Command Line

I also checked the Configuration, Command, and File Reference. There the option is correct.
