I'd like to hear more on this too. I just set up my first
objectClass=posixgroup in OpenLDAP this morning.

The password attribute is an optional attribute in the directory server
schema I'm using, and I have elected to leave it out entirely.

I just have the group name and the gidNumber attributes.
