You can find out by looking at attribute supportedExtension in the RootDSE.
The OID 22.214.171.124.4.1.1466.20037 as attribute value indicates that the LDAP
server supports Password Modify Extended Operation. Note that this attribute
might be subject to access control.
Currently the only LDAP server I know of which supports this is OpenLDAP.
