Seems that the userPassword attribute in Novell NDS is case sensitive. Adding, for example, “firstname”, NDS transforms this to “firstName” when the account is created but setting the password with “userpassword” fails with the error:

NDS error: no such entry (-601)

Although the account does get created, it’s not authenticable as you just get the error:

16 : No such attribute

as userPassword hasn’t been set correctly. Seems that NDS doesn’t transform “userpassword” to “userPassword”
