I created an LDIF file with the following line and imported it into
the directory:

userPassword: {CRYPT}$md5$4bNuD9JW$$P/Lr2qkcw9wv1yYNokfQG0

The phrase after {CRYPT}) is the hash Solaris put in its /etc/shadow.

After importing this line into the LDAP directory, I could *not* login
as the corresponding user using the password "password". :-(

It is not: We're running OpenLDAP on Debian GNU/Linux...

What is doing the authentication? Are you using pam_unix via an ldap nss
module, or maybe pam_ldap?

If pam_unix, see pam_unix/passverify.c in the pam source, which expects an
md5 hash to have the format of:




However, you have two dollar signs after your salt, and I don't know that
indicates. I tried playing around with your hash but couldn't get it to
match 'password' on my Debian system.
