Let's assume the policy for a deployment is that password changes MUST be
applied by using password modify ext. op. (e.g. because smbk5pwd is used or
similar) and you want to use object class 'account' for user entries. How
could the attribute 'userPassword' be added to the user entry then? It's kind
of a dead-lock situation.
