in reply to Finding Last Password Change Time In OpenLDAP

Don't know about OpenLDAP, but our EDirectory stores the password expiration date as "passwordExpirationTime" in Greenwich Mean Time and yyyyMMddhhmmss format. We use that to calculate the days til expiration and send email notices accordingly.

[choroba]: It should greatly simplify the parsing code, no flags or additional reading of the next buffer needed
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, that's why I like that approach; it seems even quite obvious in retrospect to me, but many things are in hindsight ;)
