I wish that were the case, but unfortunately that's not what I'm seeing here.
The default password scheme is SHA1 ( or something similar ). If the
'password-hash' keyword is not specified, then the userpassword attribute
is stored as a hash using the default scheme.
This is a problem for my perl module that needs the cleartext password so
the win32 system password can be set.
What I'm proposing is having a "null", "none", or "cleartext" arguement to
the 'password-hash' keyword so the password is left alone.
I would love to have feedback on how storing cleartext passwords in the
userpassword attribute can be achieved. Kurt said that my patch broke
things but I don't know how.
