Here's the question:
How do I import an encrypted password from a Linux /etc/shadow file into eDirectory?
Here's the answer Brad researched:
Yes, it is possible to store the encrypted password in eDirectory. First, you need eDirectory 8.6 or above and you need to install the NMAS SE that come with it. The encrypted password is stored in the SimplePassword.
The following TIDs lay the foundation for manipulating eDirectory passwords, specifically with LDAP:
Another way is to use ICE to import the encrypted passwords into eDirectory. Here are Brad's notes:
Note: During the NMAS installation, the Simple Password login method must be selected and installed to store simple/hashed passwords. The Simple Password login method is not selected and installed by default. You can see if it is installed by looking under your authorized login methods in the Security Container in your tree. If it is not there, reinstall NMAS, selecting the Simple Password login method for installation.
