Novell SecureLogin
Installed in eDirectory / LDAP Credential Manager Mode
on a Windows 7 workstation that belongs to a domain
AD and eDir passwords are the same (manually synchronized)


When user is forced to change AD password, there is no option to also change the eDirectory password.
After user changes the AD password (s)he will be prompted to login to eDir when SecureLogin launches. 
The old eDir password will be required; it will not have been changed.


Apply NSL7.0.3 HF6 or newer, and then create and set to 1  a DWORD value called SyncLDAPPassword.  This value should be created in the workstation registry under  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\LDAP
