Re: Expired password notification

ldapsearch with option "-e ppolicy" shows info about necessary password change.

Is possible to get the same info by BIND operation performing from other systems side again OpenLDAP?
Or we must create special functions in application for user attributes checking (pwdChangedTime, pwdGraceUseTime) and notification generation ?

The client applications have to support this as well by using the password policy extended control with the bind request. Basically that's what ldapsearch is doing when you use it with "-e ppolicy".

See also doc/drafts/draft-behera-ldap-password-policy-xx.txt in OpenLDAP's source distribution.

Another approach could be to inform users via e-mail.
