Hi Fredy,

We have integrated our Mac Worstations (Mountain Lion and Maverick) with 
FreeIPA with good success except for password change.

Does your method allows users to change their password through the OSX 
interface for example when a new user is created and logs in for the first 
time? For now we need to have our users go through the web interface of a 
different workstation to change their newly created account password.

At this point that is the only thing that still doesn’t work for us.

Good!  
And thanks for letting us know, it may help other users too.
