AW: on Authentication in openldap


We have made something like that:

Users are below ou=People,o=************;
if we do not want to have certain users to be able to log on, then we move them to ou=paused_accounts,ou=People,o=***********: 
that way, normal authentication will fail since the user will be looked up below ou=People,o=*************.

Afterwards, we just move the user accounts back into ou=People,o=************** and everything is ok.

Betreff: on Authentication in openldap

 Hello  List,

I have a question in my mind, which I think probably, can be ansered by you-it is as below:-

If there are anywayz that,  on successful credentials match too, authentication can be stopped by returning false??
Inotherwords when a user logs on and he is being asked to enter his uid andpassword and then it is checked with the entry stored in the database which returns either True/ False resulting into ansuccessful/unsuccessful authentication.
Is it possible tomake it a unsuccessful authentication manually for a specific userwithout hampering the user's password-this i need in order to disablethe user from the openldap server for some interval of time.

(This I want to do, in order to suspend the user to log on for some time, temporarily.)

Please throw some pointers in this direction !!!!
