RE: Problem changing passwords after import

Title: RE: Problem changing passwords after import

I guess I am not sure what you mean my portable, I was able to import all the users into ldap and they can successfully authenticate with those usernames and passwords.  Why then would just the manager account be able to change the password.  Is there away around this if they were all crypted with crypt(3)?

If those passwords were crypted using crypt(3), they might not be
portable.  This would explain your issue.
