I have setted a password policy with password history.
When i use ldappasswd for change password, this tool says me
"Constraint violation" but that do not mean the real raison of failure.

If you display the extended information sent back in the LDAP error
return, you should see a message like this "password in history"
my follwing command is not successful :
ldapsearch -h HOST -p 389 -D "cn=ADMIN" -b "ou=UNIT,dc=HOST,dc=COM" -x
-w - "(passwordHistory=OLDPASSWD)" dn
passwordHistory stores hashed passwords so this ldapsearch won't work
I suppose you could use ldapsearch to get the passwordHistory list, then
write a script to use the pwdhash command to hash and compare a given
password with the passwords in the list.
