I found it was a false error. The reason it would not change was the
password was in my history file.

What fedora ds version? What platform? Note with fedora ds 1.1 the
service name was changed to "dirsrv"
What app are you using to change the password? What is the full command
line? If you are using "passwd" are your /etc/nsswitch.conf and
/etc/ldap.conf settings correct? If you are using /usr/bin/ldappasswd
are your /etc/openldap/ldap.conf settings correct?
Any clues in your directory server access log file?
