Re: (ITS#5310) ppolicy
The ITS system is for reporting defects in OpenLDAP, and the symptoms
you are describing are not indicative of that. The OpenLDAP team will
probably close this ITS with a comment to that effect.
The 'passwd' command is an OS tool, not part of OpenLDAP. Its
interaction with OpenLDAP is through the pam_ldap module, and the
conifguration of that module is most likely where your problem lies. I
suggest posting this question on the pam_ldap mailing list that is
operated by PADL, or requesting support from your OS vendor (RedHat?).
