That was the latest as of a few weeks ago.  Did not
get the message that we must upgrade.

This password has not yet been reset as it is a newly
created user.  Sounds like you are telling me that
following the creation of a new user in LDAP we must
subsequently reset their password?  

I am hoping that admin setting the userPassword value
via LDAP API ( Java client program ) will duplicate
the behavior of ldappasswd you mentioned.
