|OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : General LDAP FAQ : Misc. : What is a "user" anyway?|
|[ Based on an e-mail from Howard Chu <firstname.lastname@example.org> ]|
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.
