I'm trying to set up a very simple LDAP server using OpenLDAP (via
OLC) and it seems hopeless.  The sticking point is ppolicy.  I have
followed several online guides
https://www.oostergo.net/node/85, to name a few), all of which seem
to essentially detail the same procedure, and have met with no
success. Whilst following those instructions, I receive no error
messages.  All commands complete successfully and do not indicate
failures of any kind.  Looking at the cn=config and target DITs, all
data seems to have been imported as expected.  Despite that fact,
passwd follows a "mystery policy" which bears no resemblance to the
policy that I have specified, and ldappasswd follows "no policy at
all you can do whatever you want". Is there some way for me to
empirically determine what these commands are doing, and why my
policy does nothing?  Thanks in advance...

objectClass: olcModuleList
cn: module{0}
olcModuleLoad: {0}ppolicy.la
olcModuleLoad: {1}back_hdb
olcModuleLoad: {2}ppolicy
olcModulePath: /usr/lib/ldap
The module names are not correct.
Hint: check /usr/lib/ldap for correct module names.


Okay, so what is the correct module name? It's listed as ppolicy in /usr/lib/ldap:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 May 25 10:09 ppolicy-2.4.so.2 -> ppolicy-2.4.so.2.8.3
-rw-r--r--   1 root root  39328 May 25 10:09 ppolicy-2.4.so.2.8.3
-rw-r--r--   1 root root    954 May 25 10:08 ppolicy.la
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 May 25 10:09 ppolicy.so -> ppolicy-2.4.so.2.8.3
