Re: olcPasswordHash scheme not available

That sounds like a bug.  In fact, {K5KEY} is loaded by smbk5pwd, so if
in slapd.conf you correctly load the module __before__ using
password-hash things work as expected.  However, when the configuration
is loaded from the back-config database, modules are loaded __after__
the global entry, which contains password-hash.  Apparently, checking
the value of the password-hash attribute must be deferred to __after__
loading the entire configuration.  This might be true in general.  I
suggest you file an ITS for this issue <http://www.openldap.org/its/>.

If it's a general problem, then we're going to need to re-shuffle the layout of the cn=config tree so that global directives are processed after any modules are loaded. But I think password mechs are the only item that can be registered at runtime that currently have a problem.
