Subject RE: [ApacheDS] Error 56
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2013 12:19:43 GMT
Hi, the case differences between your policy definition of the password attribute and the actual
name 'userpassword' might be causing a problem.

pwdAttribute: userPassword  

attribute name 'userpassword'

Hi Emmanuel,

Here's the user full profile, according to apache directory studio:
dn: uid=user1,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: person
objectClass: pwdPolicy
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
objectClass: top
cn: user1
pwdAttribute: userPassword
sn: user1
pwdAllowUserChange: true
pwdMustChange: true
uid: user1
userpassword:: e1NTSEF9NGx1QXphMkwrMFh5dXQvSWxlNllLZmxnR09LVlZtM2F3SHFZN0E9P

pwdHistory:: MjAxMzAxMzAxMjE4NTFaIzEuMy42LjEuNC4xLjE0NjYuMTE1LjEyMS4xLjQwIzE
pwdReset: true

the user password is: password5.
I'm trying to change it to: password6 (not used before)

If I disable the pwdReset flag, the user logs properly to the system, so the password is the
correct one.
