Ldap Radius Authentication

Hi all,

I am using Red Hat Linux ES3, with freeRADIUS(1.0.1-1.RHEL3 )authenticating dial-in users against openLDAP(2.0.27-17) through Cisco NAS 3745.

The system is working fine except that the freeRADIUS server ignores the openLDAP expiration attribute...

I am aware that openLDAP stores expiry date as a number of days since 1970...but freeRADIUS reads the date in the format e.g. "12 Jan 1978" hence indeed there is a great problem here...

How do I make sure that openLDAP stores date as "date-e.g. 12 Jan 1978" OR convert the stored date to the Normal date format e.g. "dd mm yyyy" so that freeRADIUS will recognize the value in the date attribute?????
