I've implemented an Open LDAP server in OpenSuSE 11.2 via the YaST GUI. I'm having success logging in from the local machine and other machines via LDAP. I am able to change LDAP user passwords via
on the command line. However, I cannot do anything else through the command line, such as
passwd -e username.
I get the following error
Authentication failure. LDAP information update failed: Operations error Error while changing password expiry information.
The same goes for any other arguments regarding password expiry or for locking accounts via
Is this simply a limitation of the LDAP server, or do I have an incorrect configuration?
