RE: Migrated users cannot bind - HELP!
I'll contact the Aphelion vendor Monday. Can you suggest one or two pointed
questions I could ask them to help me solve this problem?
Thanks again for your help!

I tried your LDIF file with my OpenLDAP 2.2.20 on a Debian Linux box.
As you said the password for gadmin doe not work.
In your LDIF file you can specify your userPassword in two different ways:
1) prefix the hash value with the name of the hash algorithm in braces:
2) or use the base64 encoded version of your hashed password:
When I do an ldapsearch on uid=mstone the ouput for userPassword is:
I base64 decoded e0NSWVBUfTVScExHQzhuQk5saHc=, the ouput is:
But if I base64 decoded e0NSWVBUfW9MUEZRYxIREA== (password for gadmin),
the output is:
It looks like Aphelion does not use the same crypt mechanism.
Could you try to get more information on how it encrypt the passwords?
