LDAP: user can't changes the password by himself

Hello everyone!

I installed HP DS 8.1 on the rx6600 server, HP-UX 11.31.
My user can login into HP-UX with LDAP successful, can do search in LDAP also. But when Im trying to change my password I have recieve:
#ldappasswd -h host -p 389 -b "ou=People,ou=test,dc=mydc,dc=com" -d
Old password:
New password:
Retype new password:
Updating password in LDAP...
ldappasswd: NIS domain is (null)
ldappasswd: yp_match ldaphost ypldapd.conf
ldappasswd: could not locate LDAP server
ldappasswd: base DN is ou=People,ou=test,dc=mydc,dc=com
ldappasswd: LDAP host is ipldap:389
ldappasswd: binding as
ldappasswd: searching for (&(objectClass=posixAccount)(uid=sky))
ldappasswd: user DN is uid=sky,ou=People,ou=test,dc=mydc,dc=com
ldappasswd: binding as uid=sky,ou=People,ou=test,dc=mydc,dc=com
ldap_bind_s: Invalid credentials
Password unchanged.

If I running ldapentry -m passwd sky - I can see all of the attributes except password.

What is wrong?
Thanks in advice.
P.S. Sorry for my worse English.

Hi,

you can change the password simply using command passwd.

ex:passwd LDAP # enter it will asking for new password.

Srikanth BM,

Yes, it works. But it's not a best way (in my plan I'll use "replica"). I need to change my password with ldappasswd.

And one another question: when I changes my passwors with ldappasswd command with "directory manager" (#ldappasswd -h host -p 389 -b "ou=People,ou=test,dc=mydc,dc=com" -D "cn=directory manager" -w dmpasswd -l sky) - password successful changed, but after that I can't login into system. Incorrect password...

Re: LDAP: user can't changes the password by himself

I found the answer for both my questions.
May be it will be interesting for someone.
I could not change the password becouse my password length was more than 8 characters. ldappasswd can only operate with password's length equal 8 or less characters.
That is it!
Im close this thred.
P.S. Thanks again to Srikanth BM for advice.
