Greetings FreeIPA users,

I'm setting up FreeIPA service in our production environment to replace
several different authentication methods for various systems. I'm trying to
migrate the first wave of users now My plan was to copy their passwords
from an old LDAP directory (one of the aforementioned several
authentication methods) and then send them to the migration page to finish
the job.
Even in migration mode, you can only set pre-hashed passwords when
creating the records, not when modifying them.

bslu...@ipa1.aws:~$ head techteam-passwords.ldif
dn: uid=user1001,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=smartling,dc=int
changeType: modify
replace: userPassword
userPassword:: e1NTSE[...]

dn: uid=user1002,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=smartling,dc=int
changeType: modify
replace: userPassword
userPassword:: e1NIQX[...]

Unfortunately it isn't working:

bslu...@ipa1.aws:~$ ldapmodify -x -D cn=directory\ manager -W -f
Enter LDAP Password:
modifying entry "uid=user1001,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=smartling,dc=int"
ldap_modify: Operations error (1)

I found some possible causes of this error, and fixed them:

bslu...@ipa1.aws:~$ ipa config-show |grep migration
 Enable migration mode: TRUE

bslu...@ipa1.aws:~$ ldapsearch -x -D cn=directory\ manager -W -b cn=config
|grep allow-hashed
Enter LDAP Password:
nsslapd-allow-hashed-passwords: on

Still no soap. Any suggestions?
Works as designed. We only allow unhashed passwords in migration mode
when entry is added, not modified.
