I see, thanks for the info. Is there any other way to enforce password

As discussed earlier in this thread
http://www.openldap.org/lists/openldap-software/200412/msg00001.html ,
the ppolicy overlay is supposed to work even with 2.2.19.  At the moment
I don't see any other chance of implementing anything like that, except
writing your own.

I am fairly new to openldap, but I began constructing a local.schema with the info listed at:

(previously listed by Pierangelo Masarati)

The schema is already in CVS slapd/schema/ppolicy.schema.

I would be greatly appreciative if someone would post the policy completed. I will continue working on it (simply because I need it). So far I just have the objectclass "pwdPolicy" and attributes listed. Will I need much more than the attributes and the objectclass? I mean will I have to define any other variables, etc. for this to work correctly?

No, everything relevant is already defined.
