RE: How to create encrypted password via command line



<<Has slapd.conf been configured to allow users write permission to their
passwords?>>

Hmmm, well good question! I checked through the file but could not determine
what should be enabled for that. Do you know what it would take to do enable
user to have write permission to their passwords?

Thanks!

Has slapd.conf been configured to allow users write permission to their
passwords? AFAIK, that's all that is required beyond normal nss_ldap
configuration.

When you attempt to change a password with the passwd command nss_ldap will
bind to the LDAP server as the user, and attempt to modify the password. If
you can run your LDAP without SSL temporarily you can capture the
transaction with wireshark and see what's going on.
