With which tool are you trying to update the password?

If you configured "pam_ldap" and are using "passwd" to change your
password, this should work, as "pam_ldap" will follow referrals.

If you are using "ldapmodify" (or "ldapadd", "ldappasswd", etc.) it will
not work since those tools do not follow referrals (AFAIR).
