"Cannot verify the quality of the non-cleartext passwords" error

    Details

      Description

      I'm getting "cannot verify the quality of the non-cleartext passwords" error while trying to add an entry into my organizationalUnit. I use MD5 hashing method while storing password. (with userPassword attribute)

      A blog post says the solution is adding ads-pwdcheckquality attribute with value of 0; but it didn't work for me. And also while trying to add this attribute; it gives a warning like this:

      I couldn't find any solution for this issue; so I opened this issue as a "bug".

        I've had that same problem with password validation. The solution indicated is the correct one... although I like to use 1 instead of 0.

        That error indicates that you are putting the attribute in the wrong object/location. The attached screen shot indicates the correct location.

        Also, you will not need to add the attribute. It should already exist in the config settings and all you need to do is to modify it.

        Don't forget to stop and restart the server to have this take effect.
