You should always check passwords by sending a simple bind request. For letting slapd generate the userPassword values you can send a Password modify extended operation request and use slapd.conf directive password-hash. Or you can set client-side hashed password values (non-salted or salted): See also: http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/419.html Ciao, Michael.
