Yes, but this did not fully work, 
this is why we disabled it in the webgui later.

We are currently developing a script that will do this, 
check the current version on

Go to each slave and the master,
restarted kolabd 
and use slappasswd to create bind_pw_hash.
You can also gather from the script how you would do this manually.
