Hi Dmitri,

No I am sticking to the 90 day, gotta start the change in the right direction 
somewhere :).

So I am trying out LBT Self service password, and I am wondering if there is 
documentation anywhere on how to create a service style account that has the 
ability to change a password without forcing the user to reset thier password 
on next login.  This would be for if a user forgets thier password and uses a 
mail token style auth.
Sorry for a delay
I know there is a way to create such an account.
It is not exposed in the UI
Here is the ticket to do it in UI/CLI https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/2801
But I do not remember the procedure of top of my head.
It might be found in the archives as it was explained couple times in the past.

Hi Dmitri,

That is quite a bucket of stuff... On the CA-less install, basically I
don't want to have my users change their passwords again (they are
complaining about the every 90 day password rotation policy), we do
not have an internal CA, most of our "desk top support" folks don't
even have access to all of the desktops in the place.  Like I said
this place is mind bending when it comes to standard practices.  The
CA-less would be good if it were possible to make that change in
place, or make the change by standing up a new IPA server and having
the ability to import the current data set.

I was looking at PWM, and may try to get that implemented.
Another option is to reset expiration time in the user entry and set it
some date close to 2038 which is the end of the 32-bit time.
If the problem is 90 day policy you can just change the policy to be
5000 days and then next time people change password they would not be
bother for another 5000 days or so (make sure it does not roll over).
For people that already have 90 days in their entry you can run a script
once and move the date into the future.

People have done it for the same reason and in the same way.

Hash: SHA512

Hi List,

I am trying to figure out a method of allowing users who do not have
shell access to change their own passwords.  The GUI that comes with
FreeIPA is out of the question due to the untrusted CA (yes I know we
are a strange shop, there is nothing I can do about it, and you would
want to gouge you eyes out if I told you the full story) becoming a
"Bad habit forming" method of changing one's password.  I have been
looking around for about a week now, and am somewhat lost and
perplexed. The old documentation for FreeIPA basically says that it is
not a good idea to manipulate the password directly in LDAP (and even
then finding what hash is being used has been next to impossible).

So the question is this, does anyone know of any tools out there that
can happily, or even with some modification, allow me to set up a
trusted external ssl site that allows users to change their passwords.
There is no external password reset self service in IPA yet. We will be
starting to look into this effort during summer.
Take a look at the bucket of tickets in the "FreeIPA Community Portal
Release" here https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/report/3.

What prevents you from making IPA trusted? You can chain IPA to your CA
or use it CA-less with certs from your own CA.
Then UI would be an option I assume.

Other option is https://code.google.com/p/pwm/
