Re: Ldap password policy not throwing different errors

So how will you distinct between the cases? How user or admin will be able to know if that user is blocked?

1. there is no appropriate result message for password policy. RFC 4511
Section 4.1.9  defines all result messages and Appendix A provides in
brief a general description. 
2. In your particular case result 49 is a substitution in order to
prevent an unauthorized disclosure.
