Re: password-policy configuration problems: cannot change passwords

If that's true, would there be anyway to change the error text? Perhaps "Password policy overlay only allows one password value in dn - more than one found". If there's a clear reason for an error, I think the added text would be valuable to an administrator.

The error message, and the code that issues that error message, seems to
indicate that pppolicy doesn't allow multiple values for the userPassword
attribute to exist in an existing entry when the password is changed.

You may want to check how many values are present for userPassword on
cn=username,dc=domain,dc=tld, and if there are multiple values, remove all or
all but one.
