The IDM AD driver requires a filter DLL to be installed on all DCs for password synchronization. Unfortunately, it seems as though the IDM 3.5 setup does not always update a previously installed version of pwfilter.dll (and associated files) properly.


The INF installer can be used to update those files so they will be used after the next reboot.

Note: This requires the IDM 3.5 AD driver.
