Subject [jira] Closed: (DIRSERVER-1064) Admin password cannot be hashed
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2008 16:35:24 GMT


Alex Karasulu closed DIRSERVER-1064.

    Resolution: Fixed

This was fixed after some changes in the big bang branch which removed the admin user from
the server.xml file.  This user is now like any other user in the server WRT the password
hashing mechanism.

> The administrator password is present within the server.xml and within the system partition.
 This is the case to require authentication to startup the server with access to the data
therein.  The problem is you cannot maintain the admin password in this file in hashed form.
 When authenticating it will get double hashed.  So either on startup and on internal admin
authentication you bypass hashing and only do it through the protocol or we need to force
keeping the admin password in clear text. 
> This is not such a good thing IMO.  Something must be done for this.
