I'm have some RHEL6 machines that use an LDAP server to authenticate. I need to
introduce in the server some checks on passwords using PPolicy. PPolicy works fine, the
problem is that to use pwdCheckQuality and pwdInHistory I need to save passwords in clear
text in the LDAP server. I did a search to find out if there is a way to let PAM to use
clear text password to authenticate but it seems that it sends SHA hashes, so
authentication fails. Do you have any suggestion?
Do "man pam_ldap" and search for pam_password parameter.
