Sounds like the search index is out of date. Still, all you have to do is go here


and the manpage is there:


But better yet, just type "man 5 slapo-ppolicy" on your machine. Why people waste time searching the web when everything is on their local machine still boggles my mind.

Also look for the ppolicy in:
... It's not there.

The Admin Guide was never intended to be an exhaustive reference - it is after all only a "guide". Every software component is documented in manpages. The manpages should always be the first place you look, not the Guide, and not the web.

Where did you get the schema and the libraries necessary?

FWIW: the password policy and MUCH more reliable syncing between servers is why we upgraded in my shop (turned off the old 2.3 master last week after finally overcoming last hurdles: solaris and use by other custom systems.)

I would suggest you compare the version you are running (2.3) with the
version that the document you are reading uses (2.4).  There is an
obvious difference there, and it is a major one.  I suggest you run a
current supported release of OpenLDAP that matches the documentation you
are using.

Thanks. I opened the 2.3 admin link instead:
and it has no overlays section at all. That's weird, since I am using
replication feature and there's a directive

overlay syncprov

in /etc/openldap/slapd.conf

How can I find the reasons for 'Invalid syntax' error in such a situation?
