ldappasswd command, after this change (either done by the manager of the
ldap or the same user) I can successfully ssh to the machine using this
In this moment if I do slapcat I can see a password with this form:

The server is an openldap-2.4.25.
Am I missing something? I though that it was perfectly possible to use

Any help will be extremely appreciated.
Thanks a lot,
