IssueHow to configure OpenDJ for RSA Access Manager
The AXM 6.2 installation has a section called "Install the Data Adapter on OpenDJ".  There is a note that says "The attribute 'allow-pre-encoded-passords' should be set to 'true' in OpenDJ Password Policy".  There are no clear instructions on how to do this.

./dsconfig --advanced

You will be prompted for the server host name, directory admin port number, Administrator user bind DN, and password.  After providing these you will be presented with a list of options to configure.  Choose Password Policy which is option 27 in OpenDJ 2.5.

Choose option 3 for View and edit an existing Password Policy

Choose option 1 for Default Password Policy

Choose option 4 for allow-pre-encoded-passwords

Choose option 2 for Change it to the value: true


Enter 'f' to apply the changes, and 'q' to quit.
