Hi All,

I have been testing FreeIPA and now plan to migrate to production use -
thanks for creating such a great application!

During the test phase we have been using simple passwords for the admin
and directory manager users however we need these changed before moving
into production. I believe we can change the admin password using the
web interface however as I understand it amending the directory manager
password is not so straightforward.

I have found this
link https://www.freeipa.org/page/Howto/Change_Directory_Manager_Password 
I am unsure if this is the correct procedure for our installation -
certainly i am having no luck so far.

We have the following setup:

FreeIPA 4.2.0 - single master server (no replicas), multiple clients
CentOS 7.2

I have tried the following steps in order:

followed by

After completing that I am no longer able to authenticate user logins.
The below covers my current situation:

This works:
ldapsearch -x -D "cn=directory manager" -w NEWPASSWORD -s base -b ""

This does not work:
ldapsearch -x -D "cn=directory manager" -w OLDPASSWORD -s base -b ""

This works:
ldapsearch -h localhost -ZZ -p 389 -x -D "uid=admin,ou=people,o=ipaca"
-W -b "" -s base

This does not work:
ldapsearch -h localhost -ZZ -p 389 -x -D "uid=admin,ou=people,o=ipaca"
-W -b "" -s base


your commands show that the Directory Manager password was properly modified, but not admin's password. Did you run the step 3 Updating PKI admin password of the procedure [1]? ldappasswd -h localhost -ZZ -p $CA_PORT -x -D "cn=Directory Manager" -W -T /root/dm_password "uid=admin,ou=people,o=ipaca"

So i'm i a mixed up state! Is anyone able to offer advise on resolving
this issue?

Thank you,
