It's ok to be {crypt} with an md5 hash, glibc (linux) will understand it.
A problem I had was that the md5 algorithm used by the client (in /etc/shadow, f.ex.) and
the one used by the ldap server were different due to linking problems.

Wil Cooley explains this in this mailling list post:


Perhaps that's the problem you are having. I applied that patch and hashes from /etc/shadow
in userPassword in the ldap server started working again.
