Problems changing LDAP password from Ubuntu 9.04

You would think that the default LDAP Ubuntu configuration (client) would be able to change your password, but it is not. http://blog.carlosgomez.net/2009/10/setting-up-ldap-client-for-ubuntu-904.html

If you are a user and you want to change your password you will get this results.

passwd: Authentication information cannot be recovered
passwd: password unchanged

The fix .....

Edit /etc/pam.d/common-passwd file. Look for use_authok and delete it. Save the file and done.

I do not know if this is a bug or not ...but I can tell you that users should be able to change password.
