Is it safe to conclude from that that if there is no default policy configured then unless an account has a pwdPolicySubentry containing the DN of a valid pwdPolicy entry it will not be subject to password policy?

Also is it generally safe to configure the policy overlay in a currently running and used openldap server? This would not affect current authentication for example? Having not configured a default, if the above is true, one could by hand switch on the policy by setting pwdPolicySubentry?

Thank you,
