Does it log in as the LDAP user or the PAM super-user to do the attribute change? I'll check out the source...but that's great news. ~BAS

FreeBSD 5.x and 6.x work fine with both PAM and NSS -> LDAP w/ TLS

All other services (RADIUS, Apache ((mod_ldap, mod_pam_auth), PHP,
interactive shell, SFTP, etc.) can be tied into LDAP either directly or
via PAM.

As for password change, I don't know if anyone has a passwd(1) binary
that properly changes the LDAP password attribute -- if there is and its
out there, it requires ACL insanity.

The passwd(1) program was rewritten some time ago to use PAM, but a test was
left in which prevents it doing so. I have asked, both on this list and on
freebsd-hackers in the last few weeks, whether there is any reason other than
historical to leave this test in, and been deafened by the silence. There are
a couple of PRs either open or suspended regarding this issue.

I diked out the whole switch statement and replaced it with a single printf,
and it works for changing LDAP passwords. I haven't thoroughly tested to see
if it causes any other problems.
