I got stuck with this problem. I'm able to change the user password
using shadowAccount objectClass but I can't do the same using pwdPolicy
It doesn't means anything: you don't change attributes using a
class. Morevoer, you seem to be confusing two different concepts:
The shadowAccount object class is just a placeholder for unix-specific
attributes, that will get used client side by some specific ldap
clients, such as pam_ldap for instance. It is supposed to be used for
user entries, already instances of posixAccount object class.
The pwdPolicy object class is a placeholder for ldap-specifics
attributes, that will get honored on server side. It is supposed to be
the main class of a password policy entry, to be applied on user entries.
I set ppolicy attribute in order to get the password
On which object ?
access to attrs=userPassword
by self write
by users read
by anonymous auth
This is a quite dangereous setting, and defeat the whole
shadow passwords: all users can read other users password hashes.
