Problem Description

When a NetIQ eDir user's password is close to expiring, Filr does not notify the user on login. Also, when a users password has expired Filr will not allow the user to log in. Filr needs to be positioned so that it will support user's who may not log into the Novell network using Groupwise or the Novell Client. As such, these users will not be prompted to change their expiring password and instead will just be locked out of Filr when it occurs.

Proposed Solution

Enhance Filr to notify and prompt the user to change the password. When it is close to expiration, notify the user and offer to allow to change the password. When the password has expired prompt the user immediately to change the password.

Perceived Benefit

This is position Filr to function without any other system in place for password changes. Making Filr much more robust and secure by supporting the expiration of passwords on user accounts.
