Ok, forget about my last mail, it makes no sense at all.

So here is what's happening :

- a BindRequest is issued, with 'uid=user8,ou=people,dc=eiger,dc=com',
and password in plain text ('password')

- a BindResponse is received (success)

- a ModifyRequest is issued (changing 'password' to 'Password!'):

delete userpassword, password
add userpassword, Password!
with the PasswordPolicy control set

- And we get a ModifyResponse which is a NO_SUCH_ATTRIBUTE error.

A few things :
- The password is a PlainText password, it might not be accepted when
the PasswordPolicy control is set.
- The SSHA encoding for password is
- The SSHA encodingf or Password! is

Can you check the ads-pwdcheckquality value in

Can you also check that the current uid=user8,ou=people,dc=eiger,dc=com
entry's userPassword contains one of the two SSHA hash value I exposed
above ?

Thanks !
