Another note: if you are looking for examples of how to configure
slapd(8) to allow directory users to change their own passwords, you
needn't look any further than the OpenLDAP test suite. In
particular, test010-passwd builds a server for the expressed purpose
of testing password updates. If you were building from source, you
could just run this particular test (./run test010) and then go
explore the configure files it leaves behind.
As someone already pointed out (with example), the only configure
slapd(8) really needs to allow a directory user to change their
password is write permission to the userPassword attribute.
