Can't modify sambaNTPassword attribute

Postby terranus » Thu Jan 19, 2012 9:05 am

Hello!

I have a problem. We have a server with Openldap and Samba installed. I tried to change sambaNTPassword attribute by LdapAdministrator recently. But in "Edit Password" dialog MD4 (WinNT) hash is disabled and not checked. So any modifications will be wrong by definition.

I found on the forum this post
Re: ADAM Password Change
... Two options are greyed here because the are not intended for userPassword attribute. They are for SAMBA specific attributes as sambaLMPassword and sambaNTPassword.

If so why is it not working?
How can I resolve this problem?

Hello!
We are going to investigate this issue. Maybe this is a bug and we will fix it then.
Could you please tell us what version of LDAP Server, SAMBA software and LDAP Administrator you are using.
Now I only can suggest you to generate correct hash with another software and then insert it to the dialog using
'Edit hash manually' option.
We'll update this topic as soon as the issue is resolved.

Here there are my software versions:
Samba 3.4.9
OpenLDAP 2.3.27
LDAP Administrator 2012.1
I've just checked all available to download LDAP Administrator versions except 3.5 (cause it requires license key at start) but none of them has resolved this issue.
And I've done clean install of the latest Samba/LDAP versions to exclude the problem without any advantage.

This issue will be fixed in the next (2012.2) version of LDAP Administrator.
