Re: ppolicy by group


Sorry, in the excitement of being shown how to apply multiple policies - I missed how to actually do this by group.

Is there a way to add the pwdPolicySubentry: field to a Group - rather than a user. So that any user in the group will have to abide by the policy - rather than having to apply a different policy to the user?

Ah, so that would suggest that adding a:

pwdPolicySubentry: cn: lesser,ou=ppolicy,dc=example,dc=com

to users of a specific group would allow the entire group to be managed by that particular policy.

"Every account that should be subject to password policy control should have a pwdPolicySubentry attribute containing the DN of a valid pwdPolicy entry, or they can simply use the configured default. In this way different users may be managed according to different policies."

That's what it says ;-)
