    Default Need helps: need to reset account password with {SSHA} value

    Dear, all. I have asked this question before but I have not gotten any replies. I am trying to ask this question once again since I have tried:

    zmprov SetPassword {SSHA}ORM+u4RKy0IvoP549/GY+d3kYgVfz6jc

    or with ldapmodify

    ldapmodify -x -Z -v -H 'ldap://' -D 'uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra' -f myldapmodifyfile -W

    #cat myldapmodifyfile
    dn: uid=myuser,ou=people,dc=mydomain,dc=com
    changetype: modify
    replace: userPassword

    I am just wondering how others change passwords of their user accounts when you only have {SSHA} values.

    After changing this user password in these manners, the user could not log in using the unencrypted password.

    Please point me to right directions when I can accomplish this.

    Thank you very much for your helps.

    I don't know that you can modify the password directly in the Zimbra LDAP. I know that running an ldapsearch against the server doesn't display the userPassword attribute, so I don't know that it's modifyable.

    Trying to use zmprov in that manner will certainly not work, it is expecting the actual password on the commandline, not a hash.

    The only thing I could think to recommend would be to assign the user a generic password, and force them to change it at next logon.
