Re: Forced password change not allowed

Thanks Matt -

With your hint, I was able to start digging around and found out that the problem was with pam - I ended up going into /etc/pam.d/common-password and change

password   sufficient   pam_ldap.so use_first_pass
password   sufficient   pam_ldap.so

Not quite sure what it does - but it works and I'll read the man pam pages later

You probably don't have the slapd ACLs configured so clients can read the necessary shadow fields... particularly those governing password age (e.g., shadowLastChange, shadowMax).

I've got openLDAP running and installed the pam and nss libraries so it

You must change your password now and login again!
Enter login(LDAP) password:

Now being a bad security person, I always use the exact same username /
password combination and they don't work.

If a use either nothing (just hit Enter) or if I put in the standard
password I get

passwd: Authentication information cannot be recovered
passwd: password unchanged
Connection to ubuntu closed.

If I enter in some nonsensical string I get

LDAP Password incorrect: try again
Enter login(LDAP) password:

However, that is the only root level user on the machine and I have TONS of
stuff on it. How do I fix? Is this an openLDAP issue or something else?
