(ITS#6697) Could OpenLdap automatically generate SSHA Hashed userPassword?

Hi All,

I've installed OpenLdap 2.4.23 in SUSE Linux, and find that:
1) The OpenLdap supports the SSHA Hash Algorithm by default: could import or
accept the creation of the Users with the {SSHA}/{SHA} Hashed userPassword.
2) The OpenLdap provides a command "slappasswd" to generate the hashed password,
while it seems that it is not able to generate the password by the OpenLdap
server automatically: after I created a user without Hashed userPassword, I
checked the data and found that the password keep unchanged and hasn't been

My question is:
Is it possible to make some configuration, so that the OpenLdap server could
automatically transfer the userPassword to Hashed format?

Thanks and Best Regards,
Sun Chang Hong
