Just a side note:

can user change their own passwd in LDAP via some kind of interface or GUI?

I just found the solution to this myself:
I recompiled the openldap software with the additional argument of : --enable-crypt

In slapd.conf I added:
password-hash {CRYPT}
password-crypt-salt-format "$1$%.8s"

Now it works smoothly for me.

I still cannot change passwords from the client.
If a user tries (using 'passwd'), I get the following error:

I CAN log into that client as a user, I just cannot change the password.

Server:  OpenLDAP 2.1.22 on Solaris 9
Client:  RedHat Linux (8.0 & 9) with default OpenLDAP installation

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
