Does anyone know how to lock an ldap user account using ldapmodify?
This is an LDAP 6.2 client running Solaris 10.
I can see the pwdAccountLockedTime set to 000001010000Z after our threshold
of 5 invalid attempts has been met but I need a way to manually lock a user account.
I tried setting the pwdAccountLockedTime field but it is read only via ldapmodify.
Thanks for any help,
Mark

I think that you have the right field. The problem is that you cannot modify it with ldapmodify. Clearly the field is
writable under the correct circumstances, since your pam policy is already changing it remotely. Perhaps you are
not binding with the proper creds in the ldapmodify?

Yes, that is the frustrating part. The field is correct and the ldap manager password should allow me access but doesn't. I was hoping someone had done this before.
