I know it is the right approach. However, the source code is no longer
maintained (no commit for 6 years) and the code owner is not responding
to any request.
But how could others help here except taking over maintenance of the module?
You could take another approach and use back-sock as overlay, configure
it to send extended operations (e.g. Password Modify ext. op.) to an
external process via Unix domain socket, and let this external process
sync the password via kadmind.
I did something like this to sync password changes to MS AD via LDAPS.
The code for the external listener implemented in Python is buried into
a module package:
Did not use the code for a while though. But it can serve as an example
how to do it.
P.S.: No, I won't implement such kadmind support myself. I have no
interest in Kerberos in my FLOSS projects.
