RE: [Fedora-directory-users] Migrating RHEL users to Directory Server

Ok then so from my reading a bit more into how the Linux MD5 sum is
calculated it seems that because it includes a salt and is otherwise
mangled what I'm attempting to do is impossible and I'll need to get
users to set passwords manually. Is this correct?

I was hoping that I could take the Linux PAM MD5 and plonk it inside
Directory Server but this doesn't seem possible. Unless there is some
plugin designed for this that understands Linux MD5?
