[OPENLDAP] slapd password confusion
In my quest to install and understand how works a PDC Samba/OpenLDAP, I
encountered a strange problem when setting my slapd admin password.
Here is my server configuration :
@(#) $OpenLDAP: slapd 2.4.11 (Oct 24 2008 23:44:05) $
I'm running ubuntu-server 8.10 Intrepid. My ubuntu is up to date. I
installed the slapd package from ubuntu repository.
dpkg asked me to specify a password for my admin account and I entered a
password like this one : totototo12;
And now when I try to modify my LDAP tree with the command "ldapmodify
-x -D cn=admin,cn=config -W", at the password prompt, I can connect with
all this password :
The only condition to login is that I wrote the beginning of my password
Why slapd does not care about the end of my password ?
If I specify a smaller password like toto12; in slapd configuration with
dpkg-reconfigure, there is no problem...
If you need more informations to help me to undersatnd what happens,
just ask me ;) .
Thanks in advance,
