RE: Tips when implementing password policies

At the risk of sounding like a nitwit (I suspect it may be too late for that - heh) - how?

I've tried an ldif, and slapcat and complains of key/data pairs existing - Apache Directory Studio reports LDAP: error code 19 - pwdChangedTime: no user modification allowed.

I supposed I /could/ dump the user branch, add the attribute, delete them from ldap and readd them via the LDIF - but that seems like using a sledgehammer to set a pin.

I /really/ appreciate everyone's input/help.

Find all objects without that attribute, and add it.  This will force all
users who previously didn't have it to have to change their password once
that expiration time is reached.
