Description Michal Vocu 2006-08-04 13:51:36 UTC
Description of problem:
Directory server does not allow LDAP password modify extended operation after
password reset and password policy requires password change.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set attribute passwordMustChange on in currently used password policy.
2. Reset any user's password (by changing it as directory manager or by setting
 passwordExpirationTime to '19700101000000Z').
3. Run ldappasswd (from OpenLDAP) to change that user's password.
Actual results:
Server responds with 'unwilling to perform'.

Expected results:
Password is changed.

Additional info:
Function connection_need_new_password(...) (file connection.c) is responsible
for allowing only bind, unbind, abandon and modify operations when
conn->c_needpw is set. I think this check should include the password change
extop as well.

The fix is to let extended operations pass through connection_need_new_password(), then check if the extended operation is the password modify extop if a password is expired in do_extended().  If the extended operation is something else, we return an error 53 along with the password expired control.
