Hi, Emmanuel!

Thank you so much for your really fast reply.

please forgive me, I changed the password a bit for security reasons  
before sending it, since I did not know that this could really be a  
I tested this now, and yes, if I change the password of a user which  
failed to import before to a compliant password now I can import the  
dataset. So the corresponding error-message is great and accurate.

I have one question which I hope you can help me with:
Does directory studio do the syntax-checking of passwords before it  
inserts the dataset or is this done by (our new)  directory server?
(we had a few upgrades with re-loading data via commandline into the  
old directory server before and I never had the impression that the  
password syntax was checked when LOADING)

I also want to thank you all for this great tool, directory studio is  
the best admin-tool I ever had. I got it recommended by an ldap- 
trainer, and I am glad to have it.

with kind regards,
