Add SMD5 password support
Last modified: 2015-12-07 12:07:28 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora Directory Server lacks SMD5 (Salted MD5) password support. This makes
migration from OpenLDAP harder, since OpenLDAP may default to SMD5.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Import OpenLDAP data with SMD5-hashed passwords.
Account passwords are unrecognized, SMD5 is not an option for new passwords.
Account passwords work, SMD5 is an option for new passwords.
We've been running the attached patch for a while to add SMD5 support on our
install. It's still rough, but I can clean it up if it's something you can use.
