I'm in the process of upgrading our live mail server from Red Hat Linux

nss_ldap/pam_ldap to authenticate users via my LDAP database.  I noticed
on my RHEL test machine that password changes were taking longer than

Hi Michael,

I will note that OpenLDAP 2.0.x is no longer supported, and is known to have various issues. It is sad that RedHat continues to distribute that version of OpenLDAP to the unsuspecting populace. You may want to evaluate later versions of OpenLDAP, like 2.1.25, which contain major fixes compared to the 2.0 line (and better databases like bdb).

Note that upgrading your LDAP db may or may not be trivial.
