Re: Migrated users cannot bind - HELP!

Hi Matt,

What flavor of UNIX/Linux are you using? What version of OpenLDAP are you
using? Are you building OpenLDAP against OpenSSL? If so what version of

Most likely your OpenLDAP linked against OpenSSL (-lcrypto) without prior
linking against the proper system library (-lcrypt) so the crypt()
function of OpenSSL is used instad of the system crypt() function. Your
version of OpenSSL may not handle md5 crypt hashed passwords.

I am using OpenSSL 0.9.7e which handles md5 passwords.
You should installed this version of OpenSSL and recompile your OpenLDAP
against it.

Hope this help.
