A Forum reader recently asked:
"Does anyone know of a tool where you can check password sync between systems in bulk?"
And here's the response from Lothar Haeger ...
For two synced eDirectory trees, you can build a password check policy into the driver and trigger. For example, you can do this from a helper attribute that you can bulk-set with iManager. The sync status can then be written back to the helper attribute. Finally, you can turn the results into an Excel spreadsheet with Wolfgang Schreiber's excellent dsreport.exe (see www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tools/1448.html).
The policy would look something like this:
<if-op-attr mode="nocase" name="PwInSync" op="changing-to">check</if-op-attr>
<if-local-variable name="srcpw" op="available"/>
Systems without reversible passwords would be a bit more challenging, I guess ...
