Thanks for your reply, I don't mind using plain text passwords, I tend to
protect the database carefully and syncronisation is a must, since we're
deploying google apps to all our users. When logging in with the built in
administrator the passwords attributes seems empty (userPassword,
unicodePwd, etc.). Any ideas?
