Depends on what you mean by magic. If you're starting from scratch, a
clean tree, you should be able to do everything by ldif files +
ldapmodify. If you want to add to or modify an existing subtree
password policy, that may be difficult to do with just ldif files - you
may have to search first, then alter your ldif based on the search results.
Thanks, the question was related to starting from scratch.
The ns-newpwpolicy.pl script essentially just generates ldif and passes
that to ldapmodify.
I did read that documentation, but I was unclear wether the documentation wanted you to
only use the command or whether modifying using ldifs were permitted. I guess that
specifying the command prevents unnecessary support calls or emails on the list because of
