Our "consultant on the street" Raymon Epping found this support TID lacking a few steps (namely 3 and 4 below).

Technical Information Document

Passwords are not synchronizing between the two eDirectory trees. - TID-10077451

symptom
Passwords are not synchronizing between the two eDirectory trees.

cause
The filters on the Publisher and Subscriber channels in one of the trees only synchronized the CN attribute for the User object class.

fix
Add the attributes to the User object class to allow the passwords to synchronize between the trees.

note
Steps to change the filter:

  1. Right click on the Publisher object and select properties.
  2. Highlight the User enter and select Edit Filter button.
  3. Add check boxes to the attributes that deal with Password.
    ( * PUBLIC key, * PRIVATE key + GUID)
  4. Do the same for the Subscriber filter.
