Nevermind, I found the answer to my problem. I forgot to point out in
my original post that I'm running slapd chrooted. Guess what wasn't
in chroot? /dev/random and/or /dev/urandom. When using ssha or smd5,
slapd uses openssl to get the random bytes. In turn, on systems with
a /dev/random, openssl uses that to get bytes.
I created the device in the chroot area, and BAM, ssha and smd5 work again.
Maybe this should be tossed in the FAQ?
