Description of problem:
OS RHEL5 Client Workstation
Sun Java 1.5.0_11-b03
When the /etc/ldap.conf pam_password line is set to exop, server configured
password policies (composition and history) work, but the passwordexpirationtime
resets to 19700101000000Z when changing the password with /usr/bin/passwd.
When the pam_password line is set to md5 the passwordexpirationtime is set
properly but server password poilicies are ignored.
Change /etc/ldap.conf to have "pam_password exop" line.
Setup Password Expiration under Directory Server -> Configuration -> Data ->
Passwords. Set password to expire after 180 days.
Use /usr/bin/passwd to change a LDAP account password.
Look at the passwordexpirationtime on the changed account.
Nathan, do you recall if this was fixed in 1.2.0?
I believe that this was fixed as part of bug #248924. The fix is in 1.2.0.
