(Answer) (Category) OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : (Category) General LDAP FAQ : (Category) Misc. : (Answer) What is a "user" anyway?
[ Based on an e-mail from Howard Chu <hyc@highlandsun.com> ]
Any DN in your directory that has a "userPassword" attribute can be "user", and (potentially) bind to the LDAP directory. You have to make sure that the "userPassword" attribute is in a suitable format.
For that, see the slappasswd man page, and the "Passwords" section in this FAQ.
