Hi there, i got everything working correctly. however there is some thing need to put into place. ho do you set a minimum length password and require others to follow that length. if they type a password that is less than the minimum length, i need to prevent them from adding the user to the database.

Any help will be much appreciated

Try this article at, specifically section 12.10

I also haven’t looked at the YAST openLDAP applet in a long time.
Be sure to look at that closely, do as much configuration as you can using the applet before you modify configs manually.
