Your server (not openldap) probably doesn't support the openldap
extension 'ldap password sync' uses.

I think this is a sensible extension, and it's documented in an RFC
these days, so perhaps you could talk to your vendor about supporting

Otherwise, you could hack some things up via 'unix passwd sync', but
it's far less elegant.
