Hi to whom it may concern,

we used for many years a 2 location policy to separate email users from unix 
users in order to not using the same passwords. So we had 2 trees in our LDAP 
with the same user but different passwords.

In freeipa (where we want to migrate now) I can use the accounts and compat 
(for email) trees for this purpose and so I added a

dn: cn=users,cn=Schema Compatibility,cn=plugins,cn=config
changetype: modify
add: schema-compat-entry-attribute
schema-compat-entry-attribute: userPassword=*
to the compat settings  to have a separate place for the password (!not 
userPassword=%{userPassword}, because then the accounts password are mirrored). 
This works, but I’m not allowed to change the password i.e. with:
ldappasswd -x -D "cn=Directory Manager" -W -S 
I get a result of:

No such object (32)
Additional info: Failed to update password

where as for the accounts tree the ldappasswd is working fine.
What additional setting may be required?
