All password policies reside in the directory server configuration (under cn=config). Configuration information is not replicated and is specific to each directory server instance. If you modify the default password policy, you must make the same changes on each directory server instance in a replicated topology. Similarly, specialized password policies are not replicated to other directory servers.
Additional considerations for using password policies in replicated environments include the following:
The directory server replicates all password information (current password, password history, password expiration) that is stored in the user entry.
If a user changes his password, the new password might take a while to be updated on all replicas.
A user might receive multiple password expiration warnings, one from each replicated server.
