Glad you solved your issue.

I’ve been there myself so don’t worry about it at all.

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for your input, I am able to clarify that I wasn't simply copying and 
pasting in - the dollar sign was included in my password rather than the 
example. But yes, no denying that my command line skills are to blame.

Further to this problem I am happy to report that the issue is now solved. My 
main issue was the dollar sign meaning that I had updated the DM password 
incorrectly for FreeIPA. Secondly I appear to have caused an issue with SSSD 
and it was a restart of this service which finally resolved the issue for me. I 
doubt there is much to be learnt from my issue - definitely user error.

Thanks so much for your responses, very much appreciated. Apologies for taking 
up your time.

Callum

Hi,
I think you are copying and pasting the exact same commands from the article, 
which is of course a wrong approach. Never copy/paste from web to execute on 
your server. That $ signs indicates you can give any name you’d like.

Subject: Re: [Freeipa-users] Directory Manager Password Change

Hi Flo,

I have indeed executed every step in order, including the one you have 
indicated.

The password I has used included a dollar sign and this meant that echo -n 
$DM_PASSWORD > /root/dm_password didn't work as I had expected meaning 
everything after the dollar was interpreted as a variable and was missing in 
the file. I have corrected this and performed the full process again, starting 
with the 389 reset however it is still not working correctly.

I remain in the same state as before where the admin password has not been 
changed - this confuses me as my understanding is that admin only exists as the 
FreeIPA web admin user whose password I can change separately. Am i 
misunderstanding, is there another admin user within FreeIPA which is directly 
linked to the directory manager?

Having run out of ideas I have just executed ipa-server-upgrade however this 
hasn't helped. My situation remains as follows:

Works: ldapsearch -x -D "cn=directory manager" -w  NEW_DM_PW  -s base -b "" 
"objectclass=*"
Fails:  ldapsearch -h localhost -ZZ -p 389 -x -D "uid=admin,ou=people,o=ipaca" 
-w NEW_DM_PW -b "" -s base

Are you able to offer any other ideas?

Other information:
I can confirm that cacert.p12 has been updated by the actions performed.
File /etc/pki/pki-tomcat/password.conf now contains a new line 
internaldb=NEW_DM_PW (as per instruction 1 on FreeIPA link)

Best Regards,

Callum

Hi,

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"

Flo.
