Re: md5 passwords from /etc/passwd

Password must be in form:


slapd.conf must have:
password-crypt-salt-format     "$1$%.8s$"

If you run slapd on linux, it must be linked with -lcrypt, wich MUST BE LINKED BEFORE "-lcrypto"

if you run slapd on bsd, just edit slapd.conf.

but problem is that some users had crypt (youknow, with usual 2-byte salt) and some md5 passwords in /etc/passwd and
so in are they now in ldap.
So then i put password-crypt-salt-format     "$1$%.8s$" then usual {crypt} passwords wont work , is'nt it?

That should not be a problem. My users are pretty evenly split between the 2 password forms.
