When quality checking is enabled, this attribute holds the maximum number of characters that may be used in a password and applies to the Password-composition Policy within the Password Policy

If this attribute is NOT present, no Password Maximum Length will be enforced. If the server is unable to check the length (due to a hashed password or otherwise), the server will, depending on the value of the pwdCheckQuality attribute, either accept the password without checking it ('0' or '1') or refuse it ('2').
