Symptoms


DPS with multiple DS backends in MMR. Native LDAP clients on Solaris.
Noticed that when a user's password is reset("pwdreset" attribute set to "true" in user's entry) and the "pwdMustChange" attribute in the password policy is set to "true",  that the user is NOT getting the "Password was reset and must be changed" message when logging into the Native LDAPclients.
State this only happens when the client goes through the DPS server which was put into place for testing. State previously these same clients DID get the password reset prompt when they connected directly to the DS servers.
In testing it is seen that a ldapsearch, as a user whose password was reset,goes through the DPS server to the backend DS server and the user DOES see the "Password was reset and must be changed" message. The issue is seen when the users attempt a SSH login, in which case they do not see the password reset message.

Expected behavior is that a user should see the "Password was reset and must be changed" message when the user's password is reset("pwdreset" attribute set to "true" in user's entry) and the "pwdMustChange" attribute in the password policy is set to "true" when logging into Native LDAPclients and the authentication request goes through the DPS 11.1.1.5.0 server to the backend DS 11.1.1.5.0 servers.
