Howard had said in a post last year:
For better backward compatibility, olcPasswordHash is allowed in both the
olcGlobal entry and the frontendDB entry. The preferred location for this
setting is now in the frontendDB entry. When generating a slapd.d from a
slapd.conf file, only the frontendDB entry will carry the attribute. Existing
slapd.d configs with the attribute in the global entry should continue to work
but they should be manually updated to use only the frontendDB entry.
I'm trying to set my OpenLDAP config to use MD5 as the default password hashing algorithm (to be compatible with some
other things we use). I'm using the latest OpenLDAP install for Ubuntu Intrepid, which is version 2.4.11.
I added the olcPasswordHash attribute, and the relevant output of my cn=config (using ldapsearch -xLLL -b
cn=admin,cn=config -W) now looks like this:
But my passwords, when added/modified using ldappasswd still seem to use something other than MD5.
Just wondering if anyone might have an idea what's causing the problem?
