If everything is working, the server will return an error to the client, which typically
would display it in a dialog box.
For example, LAM passes this error along from the server:
Error: 19: Password is not being changed from existing value
...if you have password policy configured to disallow password reuse.

Subject: [389-users] enforcing password policy
I finally have permission to configure password policy in our ldap
servers, but have a question about how it is enforced. Our service desk is
able to access our LDAPs using LDAP Account Manager (LAM) and other admins
can use LAM or tools like jexplorer. Once I have password policy in
place, does anyone know how these types of tools would react if a user
tries to change a password that doesn't conform to the policy?
