I'm trying to set my OpenLDAP config to use MD5 as the default password
hashing algorithm (to be compatible with some
other things we use). I'm using the latest OpenLDAP install for Ubuntu
Intrepid, which is version 2.4.11.

something other than MD5.
Just wondering if anyone might have an idea what's causing the problem?
