I am using OpenLDAP (a newbie where it is concerned) and so far, so good. I have it set such that users can change their own password. I then thought I would whip up a quick perl script to send a friendly email reminder to users several days before their password is set to expire (I did something similar some time back only with Active Directory as the LDAP server). The problem is I can't even figure out how to find the last time a user's password was changed in OpenLDAP? If I could figure that out, I could probably come up with something in Perl to find it. I can use ldapsearch and see user attributes including the password hash but I don't see anything showing when the password was last changed?
After Googling for a while, still no luck so I thought I would give this a try. I realize it is not entirely a Perl question, but I'm hoping someone knows how to do this and perhaps has already done something similar in Perl?
Thank you in advance.
