Description Noriko Hosoi 2014-09-23 01:04:05 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:
https://fedorahosted.org/389/ticket/47900

root DN, aka "cn=directory manager", should not be restricted by password policy.  During ADD operations the root DN is incorrectly restricted by password policy.  Updating an existing entry, doing a MOD, works as expected.

Comment 1 mreynolds 2014-09-30 19:21:19 UTC
Fixed upstream.
