If the default password policy for OpenLDAP has a pwdMinAge value other than 0 (disable) I'm unable to set the initial password for a newly created account.

Failed to modify UNIX password: Password is too young to change at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/ line 1494, <STDIN> line 2.


This has never been an issue in previous releases. This is a pressing issue as we'd like to be able to set the pwdMinAge to 1 day (86400) to comply with infosec.
