Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction as I appear to be
going around in circles at this stage.
I am attempting to migrate from one server running OpenLDAP 2.4.9 configured
with old style slapd.conf to a new server running openldap 2.4.23 with the
dynamic cn=config setup.
I've successfully exported / imported via slapcat and slapadd and using
phpLDAPadmin I can browse all my users. The issue I run into is the use
passwords do not work when I try to log into services (e.g. IMAP).
Using phpLDAPadmin I perform a password compare and it returns a mismatch.
Looking at the slapcat output for a user, the "userPassword" is afaik md5
run though base64 and presented as such but once bas64 is decoded it matches
what phpLDAPadmin reports if I export the user.
I docode this :
user(a)server.tld$ perl <<EOF
print decode_base64('e01somedandomdataPT0=') . "\n";
Exporting the user in phpLDAPadmin and compare it's reported userPassword to
the above perl output and they match. As they match I am at a loss as to
why the password is not accepted when I try to login via IMAP or check
password in phpLDAPadmin. As soon as I change the password, the account
works find and the user can log in.
Any help greatly appreciated, as I would rather not have to reset user
