3.3 Logging in When eDirectory and Windows Credentials Are Not Synchronized

If your eDirectory account password is not in sync with the Windows account password when logging in through the Novell Client for Windows credential provider, you will see a screen confirming that the eDirectory (Novell) login succeeded and letting you enter the Windows account password.

If you specify the correct Windows account password and continue with the login, the Novell Client then logs you in to both eDirectory and Windows.

If users have the permissions necessary to change their Windows account password, and it’s desired that the eDirectory account password and Windows account password match during future logons, selecting the Change your Windows password to match your Novell password after a successful login checkbox will syncronize the account passwords after the correct credentials have been provided.
