I would like to relax the password policy for specific users to allow them to modify passwords but use similar password to their old one. These are "group" accounts and would like to allow password to be set to: password01 then allow password to be changed to password02. Currently this is not allowed. I understand security risk etc in allowing this. I do want to keep other password complexity and history settings.

I'm not aware of a setting in 389 that prohibits you from using secret01, then secret02, and then secret03, etc.  These should all be allowed.  Are you using some other client app(freeIPA?) to make these password updates?
