Subject RE: ApacheDS Password policy issues
Date Thu, 10 Nov 2011 17:57:37 GMT
Hi, yes I definitely have that extra control set because the class was refactored. 

2.00-M3 class name in wrapper.conf
org.apache.directory.shared.ldap.extras.controls.ppolicy.PasswordPolicyFactory

2.00-M4 class name in wrapper.conf
org.apache.directory.shared.ldap.extras.controls.ppolicy_impl.PasswordPolicyFactory

I know there's a lot in the message but is my logic / approach correct? It seems like it should
be working but I'm at a loss.

make sure that the system property EXT_CTRLS is set before starting the server (use System.setProperty()
if running in embedded mode)

EXT_CTRLS="-Dextra.controls=org.apache.directory.shared.ldap.extras.controls.ppolicy_impl.PasswordPolicyFactory"

for a list of other properties and additional control factories take a look at this script
