Does SLES11 SP1 ship with an openldap2 quality password checker library, like the one found at http://ltb-project.org/wiki/documentation/openldap-ppolicy-check-password?

Hi poomatang,

I'd guess that running a PAM module for this is more conforming - pwcheck is included in the distribution. How that compares to the pw checker lib you referenced I don't know.

Jens

Thanks. I ended up compiling check_password.c from the ltb project. Does what I need it to do now.
