Re: unicodePwd

Hello Michael,

And, if I want to use openldap API to change AD user password in C/C++. I can do that with Perl without problem but not with openldap library and C/C++. Do you have a example (or some documentation) for me ?

The best way of setting a password is to use the LDAP Password Modify Extended
Operation as described in RFC 3062 and let the server generate the password hash:


The second way is to send a modify request for replacing password with a
client-side hashed userPassword value.

An (incomplete) attempt to describe the variants was made here:

Some more information here:

Some server implementations are capable of auto-hashing clear-text
userPassword values at the server-side, e.g. OpenLDAP with slapo-ppolicy and
config directive ppolicy_hash_cleartext. But that depends on server configuration.

Ciao, Michael.
