Thanks to Zaigui Wang for pointing me in the right direction.

I ended up placing a service call with SUN.

There will be two options in the future that fix this problem. Both 
options require SUN ONE Directory server 5.1

1) Sun is testing patch. The patch number is T108993-16 and it's a 
backport of the Solaris 9 LDAP client. Which will support passwd aging.
2) Sun is testing and might be releasing a windows password sync program 
for DS 5.1. This might work for me.

Hope this helps some of you out. wrote on 04/03/2003 01:55:54 PM:
