Description of problem:
If an administrative user attempts to update the password of an LDAP user (which should not be possible) the result is an error message "Operation failed. An error occurred" but the detailed message is blank. Digging into the server log file you can see:

functionally this is working, but you can't update LDAP password through JON.  the error message could be better.
