Changing LDAP passwords using passwd(1)


To enable passwd(1) to change ldap passwords, you need to
change /etc/pam.d/passwd to look like the following:

   password   sufficient pam_ldap.so
   password   required   pam_unix.so use_first_pass nullok obscure min=4 max=8

Note that you will need to restart nscd (if it is running)
after changing a ldap password for the system to realise that
it has changed.
