RE: Openldap password problems

This is what I use. I'm not sure this is the highest possible security but it did fix the "ignore anything over 8 characters" issue.

password-hash {CRYPT}
password-crypt-salt-format "$6$%.12s"

Such a general statement is non-sense without taking a closer look at which 
crypt scheme is really used.

Consult your local crypt(3) man page to see whether crypt schemes like "$6$" 
or "$2b$" are supported on your system which are definitely stronger than 
simple {SSHA}. Then use password-crypt-salt-format to make use of such a crypt
