Password Policy

Hi Guys,
I have implemented password policy on linux but Solaris clients are not giving any error message other than permision denied.
For example,
I have pwdInHostory 6, if i try to change password on linux and use old password I get straight away error message
-bash-3.00$ passwd
Changing password for user test.
Enter login(LDAP) password:
New UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
LDAP password information update failed: Can't contact LDAP server
Password is in history of old passwords
But When I do same on Solaris I get following
-bash-3.00$ passwd wbarrera
Enter existing login password:
New Password:
Re-enter new Password:
Permission denied
But on server side debug I can see following
send_ldap_result: err=19 matched="" text="Password is in history of old passwords"
Why Solaris is not showing "Password is in history of old passwords" to user.
Solaris is using its native client to connect openldap over TLS
Any help would be appreciated
