Changing either Windows password or eDir password does not change the other with NSL-LDAP

This document (7013341) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Installed in LDAP mode


eDir password is not changed when the Windows password is changed
Domain password is not changed when eDirectory password is changed
Ctrl-Alt-Del Change password does not change both eDir and Windows passwords
$Syspassword shows old value after password change

Problem only occurs with SecureLogin installed in LDAP mode


Apply NSL7.0.3 HF6 or newer, and add the following registry setting:

SyncLDAPPassword - Dword (0 or 1 )

0 - no sync is performed
1 - synchronize the login password with ldap server.

Note:  It might also be necessary to add the value "SyncDelay" in the same registry location,
a REG_DWORD set  to any non-zero number as described in TID 7013468.
