RE: Applying individual password policies

That did the trick and makes sense. I was following a tutorial online that had the ldif I was trying to add... Much thanks..

I have a default password policy working OK but I'd like to override the default policy for one individual.

I create the policy and add this LDIF without any problems.

dn: cn=user,ou=Policies,dc=mdvcat,dc=lott
cn: user
objectClass: pwdPolicy
objectClass: person
objectClass: top
sn: Password Policy
pwdAttribute: UserPassword
pwdMaxAge: 0
pwdLockout: FALSE
pwdMinLength: 10

I then try to apply the policy to a user with the following LDIF

dn: uid=ldapmgr,ou=people,dc=mdvcat,dc=lott
changetype: modify
add: pwdPolicySubentry
pwdPolicy: cn=user,ou=Policies,dc=mdvcat,dc=lott

The attribute is pwdPolicySubentry not pwdPolicy.

dn: uid=ldapmgr,ou=people,dc=mdvcat,dc=lott
changetype: modify
add: pwdPolicySubentry
pwdPolicySubentry: cn=user,ou=Policies,dc=mdvcat,dc=lott

Try the above ldif.

I receive the following error.

ldapadd -f ldapmgr.ldif -x -D cn=root,dc=mdvcat,dc=lott -W
Enter LDAP Password:
modifying entry "uid=ldapmgr,ou=people,dc=mdvcat,dc=lott"
ldapadd: Undefined attribute type (17)
        additional info: pwdPolicy: attribute type undefined

Any help would be appreciated
