Re: [389-users] ldapsearch to get users with expired password

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi

Thanks for the answer, but my users don't have the attribute
passwordexpirationtime, because this attribute is not generated until
the user login after the activation of the account/password policies.

Reading, I have seen that when a user binds to the server, the server
returns some controls indicating the expiring/expired password, if in
case. But I can not bind with the user as I don't have it's password,
so I can not get the controls that would return a bind with its user.
Could I simulate this using a proxy auth, ie, binding as Directory
Manager, but simulating a login of the user? Would this need some
special ACI? I am a bit lost...

Thanks in advance.
