SSH Server and Hash algorithms

I have a Centos 6.2 server freshly updated. It is authenticating
against an Ldap server, and I am having an issue with the hashing
algorithms being used by various utilities and servers.

First of all:

authconfig --test | grep hashing
password hashing algorithm is sha512

However, when I change a password using the passwd command, I see the

cn: Alex M
userPassword: $1$kxH/MHL7$.51e8u0CooCalDaXsHSKD/

Crypt? OK, well, it's a crypt (MD5) password even though authconfig
says it'll be using sha512... But, I can log in using sshd.

Now, if I change the password using the smbpasswd utility, and rerun
the smbldap-usershow command:

cn: Alex
userPassword: UGRSbhcFL0qLRdj6yWvqRidZPfIiBPYb

OK, now it's an SSHA (sha512) hash! BUT, I can no longer ssh to the server!

WTF??? Anyone have any insights into what I am missing here, and more
importantly, how I can fix it? I'd obviously rather use SSHA than

It is a Salted SHA-1, not a SHA512.
I dont know if it  matter for your problem.
