LDAP shadow password authentication in FreeBSD 5.1

Hi all,

I have recently setup a FreeBSD 5.1 client machine that I would like to
use LDAP with. I have installed the latest pam_ldap and nss_ldap from
ports. I am currently able to id all the users and su to them. But no luck
with the shadow password authentication.

I already have a Linux and Solaris client authenticating. I really hope
that it is possible in FreeBSD 5.1.

On the LDAP server I see only the queries for objectClass=posixAccount but
none for objectClass=shadowAccount .

Thank you very much for any tips.
