Re: Issue while changing user password by self

Thanks for you response, Yes you are right the issue was with ppolicy pwdAllowUserChange attribute as it was set to FALSE, it is working fine now after changing it to TRUE

Thanks & Regards

I am trying to allow users to change their own passwords

        OS                        RHEL7

        Openldap version         2.4.39-7.el7_1.x86_64

ACL in slapd.conf

        disallow bind_anon

access to attrs=userPassword

       by self write

       by dn.base="cn=mirrormode,dc=rnd,dc=com" read

       by dn.base="cn=binduser,dc=rnd,dc=com" read

       by * auth

access to *

       by dn.base="cn=mirrormode,dc=rnd,dc=com" read

       by dn.base="cn=binduser,dc=rnd,dc=com" read

       by * break

access to *

       by dn="cn=Manager,dc=rnd,dc=com"

       by users read

       by self write

       by * auth

from client machine 'user5' is trying to change own password and getting following error

$ ldappasswd -H
ldaps://ldapdev.rnd.com:636 -x -D "cn=user 5,ou=people,dc=rnd,dc=com" -W -A  -S
Old password:

Re-enter old password:

New password:

Re-enter new password:

Enter LDAP Password:

Result: Insufficient access (50)

Additional info: User alteration of password is not allowed

This error looks like issue with permissions, yet i have already allowed access to attrs=userPassword by self write in slapd.conf, please let me know if there is any thing wrong in above ACL and why i am getting this error

This may be linked to your configuration of ppolicy overlay. Check the pwdAllowUserChange attribute of your policy entry, it should be set to TRUE.
