    Looking at the change_LDAP_password function in locksmith (at least in trunk) I notice you are hashing and replacing the attribute directly. It is probably easier/cleaner/better? to test for and use the ldap exop for password changes:

    $msg = $ldaph->set_password(user => $dn, newpasswd => $newpass, oldpasswd => $oldpass);

    This will let stuff like the openLdap smpk5pwd and ppolicy modules take care of other password related stuff like syncing NT/LANMAN passwords (needed for MSCHAP/eap/peap for wifi via radius) and password policy enforcement on the server. It also handles the encryption on the server with whatever standard the admin has setup in it there.

      Probably an excellent suggestion, but I haven't had to use that system in a while, and no longer have access to those systems, so I have no way of easily testing whether that would work or not.
