Re: openldap 2.4.40 ppolicy module and shadowInactive equivalent



I found little information on this contrib nssov overlay: http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/guide.html#nssov


How do you implement it? Is it similar to adding the ppolicy overlay?


Thank you,

I setup a password policy overlay on my openldap 2.4.40 servers running

RHEL7. I need to enforce the following: disable accounts that have been

inactive for 180 days. In the past we were able to do this by simply

adding the shadowInactive attribute to each account: shadowInactive 180.

But with the new openldap, it appears there is no equivalent attribute??


OpenLDAP ppolicy has never supported that attribute, as far as I know.  I

believe you are looking for the contrib nssov overlay, which does support



Hope that helps!
