My AIX 5.3 update userPassword in clear on LDAP

I'm running OpenLDAP 2.3.43 in a linux Host.
I have a AIX 5.3 TL9 as client.

All works fine with client authentification, information reading in LDAP server and all the stuff.

The only problem is :

when I run passwd with an LDAP user it updates password (userPassword) with clear text.

Somebody allready had this problem ?

Thanks for your help

ldap_start_tls, ldap_start_tls_s, ldap_tls_inplace, ldap_install_tls - LDAP TLS initialization routines LIBRARY
OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap) SYNOPSIS
#include <ldap.h> int ldap_start_tls(LDAP *ld); int ldap_start_tls_s(LDAP *ld, LDAPControl **serverctrls, LDAPControl **clientctrls); int ldap_tls_inplace(LDAP *ld); int ldap_install_tls(LDAP *ld); DESCRIPTION
These routines are used to initiate TLS processing on an LDAP session. ldap_start_tls_s() sends a StartTLS request to a server, waits for the reply, and then installs TLS handlers on the session if the request succeeded. The routine returns LDAP_SUCCESS if everything suc- ceeded, otherwise it returns an LDAP error code. ldap_start_tls() sends a StartTLS request to a server and does nothing else. It returns LDAP_SUCCESS if the request was sent successfully. ldap_tls_inplace() returns 1 if TLS handlers have been installed on the specified ses- sion, 0 otherwise. ldap_install_tls() installs the TLS handlers on the given session. It returns LDAP_LOCAL_ERROR if TLS is already installed. SEE ALSO
