      Description

      CRYPT passwords embed multiple values into a single field, in particular the algorithm and the salt used. This method is known as Modular Crypt Format
      http://www.tummy.com/journals/entries/jafo_20110117_054918

      When given a userPassword field described using this system, the "show password details" display on the value editor gets the salt wrong and fails to verify.

        Can you explain how salts should be displayed? Do you mean they should be be prefixed with "$x$"? In LDAP the passwords are prefixed with "

        {schema}

        " which is defined in RFC 2307 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2307#section-5.3
